Our philosophy is to have super premium red wines of exceptional distinction with grapes grown exclusively on Kangaroo Island.

We have a very strong belief that low yields produce the best wines.

We have achieved yields of only about 2.75-3.0 tonnes/ha in 1998, 2.5 tonnes/ha in 1999, and in 2000 when fruit set was so poor right across the premium growing areas of South Australia, 2 tonnes/ha.

We are aiming at a maximum of 6.25 tonnes/ha, and 2001 only just exceeded 5 tonnes/ha. (1 ha = 2.54 acres)

We are very careful to slow the growth of the vine between flowering/fruit set and veraison.

This produces desirably small berries with very high skin area to juice ratio.
