VINEYARD

A blend from all of our vineyard sites, Leah is named after Michael Seresin’s daughter. The fruit is handpicked and completely destemmed before being fermented with wild yeast. A long post-ferment maceration period gives this wine its savoury elegance and structure. Exhibits bright, fragrant berry-fruit aromas, interlaced with spice and herbal notes. The wine is focused and concentrated, with a succulent fruit core, framed by fine-grained tannins and a mouth-watering acidity. An elegant and understated style with immediate appeal, but structure to last.

We farm biodynamically. This means we work in harmony with seasonal, earthy and celestial rhythms. Our wines therefore express a sense of time, with wines from each harvest subtly different from its predecessor. We keep the vines healthy by feeding the soil with animal manure composts, and spraying the vine leaves with teas made from local herbs and minerals.

We put more back into the land than we take out. As a result, our wines express an ever stronger sense of place.

We see the vineyard as a living organism, a space that our workers, animals and wild birds, flowers, worms and insects can share. Our wines express this sense of life and harmony.
