February News Letter
Welcome back to our series of Wedge-Tales for 2024.
The “El Nino” summer so far gave us 150mm this January, a record since I have been keeping records for the last 30 years. Yes, It’s been 30 years last December since we bought the property. It was grass paddock with the homestead building. The amphitheater shape hills were an inspiration for producing successfully multiple grape varieties on one small 10 acres area.
This summer vegetation seems to be far more advanced in their maturity than usual. “Veraison” the period when the grapes change colour from green to purple usually occurs in early February, this year it started in the first week of January.
Early vintage no doubt, the crop is looking very good and generous. As they say “so far so good”.

Since most of the wine making start’s in the vineyard, in was imperative to choose a site that would offer as much complexity and diversity as possible. Single vineyard wines are more at the mercy to their terroire than regional blend. To preserve the single vineyard characteristic at Wedgetail we employed a minimalist approach to wine making, which means less interference that leads to less additives, less pumping and filtering. The purity of the fruit is blended for an absolute delectation.
