The influence of the Southern Ocean's climate on the vineyard is significant and enables the production of colourful, aromatic, cool-climate wines.

The hand-crafted, estate-grown range also includes three sparkling wines and a selection of Cabernet blends, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc Semillon wines are also made.
