Vineyard The grapes were harvested from dryland farmed vineyards in Darling, where the vines are not trellised and planted as bush vines on a combination of laterite soils 15 km from the Atlantic Ocean. These grapes ripen as nature intended without human intervention, we do monitor vineyards for optimal picking times, adopting a combination of sampling and tasting to optimize the richer tropical (thiol) notes. Both Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon vineyards are situated high up in the mountains receiving the direct South-Western cold Atlantic winds, where the average temperature is about
8-10 °C cooler than our other vineyards, which helps the grapes retain their fruit flavours much better.
