Our Philosophy

Discover Coldstream Hills

Our winemaking philosophy is simple: express the individuality and nuance of each vineyard, and to craft wines which demonstrate the uniqueness and pedigree of the Yarra Valley. This winemaking philosophy is managed by a highly credentialed and experienced team, led by Senior Winemaker Andrew Fleming.

Our team of winemakers use a combination of modern and traditional techniques to build our outstanding and distinctive wines.

In the vineyard, all aspects of viticulture are managed with skill and precision. Such viticultural exactitude includes an emphasis on pruning techniques, shoot positioning, fruit thinning, and regular assessment of vineyards throughout the growing season.

Our winemakers are in constant dialogue with the vineyard team and our community of growers, all of which are crucial to the performance of the vineyards and quality of the fruit we use.

In the winery, our meticulous approach to winemaking continues. All batches are handled separately to allow close monitoring of the progress of each parcel: a minimal intervention approach is employed, allowing as much of the vineyard to be expressed in the wines; appropriate use of winemaking techniques to add complexity depending on the varying needs of the variety; and the careful use of high quality oak.
