James' Review

Australian-born and educated winemaker and owner Troy Walsh began his journey into wine as a sommelier in London for 12 years (1990-2002), working his way up to some of the most exalted restaurants. In 2010 he followed the Flying Winemaker path of vintages in Australia and France each year. He also quickly ran his colours up the mast by focusing on pinot noir and chardonnay in Burgundy and Geelong. The wineries he worked with here and in France all used whole bunch fermentation as a significant part of the vinification process, and he uses the practice to a greater or lesser degree in most of his wines. Initially all of the grapes were contract-grown, and Troy continues to purchase grapes from two vineyards near Bannockburn. In 2010 Troy and wife Jane purchased an 18ha property 20km south of Ballarat, and moved the family from Melbourne, establishing a 1.5ha ultra-high density (1m ? 1.2m spacing) planting of pinot noir (MV6, 777 and Pommard) and 0.5ha of chardonnay. Attwoods also leases a 20yo vineyard at Garibaldi planted to 0.5ha each of pinot noir and chardonnay.
