Producing mostly Pinot Noir on own roots with nine different clones to provide diversity and complexity from this single vineyard of 9ha. Three tiers of production;Kota (meaning shell) is entry level and well suited to glass pour, Classic is our black label premium level, matured in top french oak barrels for 10 months and our top label is our White Knuckle Hill produced in exceptional years from a steep hill. Other varieties include Gruner Veltliner (5 stars for 5 years), Pinot Gris, Sauvignon Blanc (Sancerre characters), Merlot with a touch of Cabernet Franc.
