Fusing old world winemaking with Yarra Valley terroir

Cellar Door – Open Days

A Christmas Letter    December 2018

My first newsletter to the few subscribers we had at the time, was written in August 2001. The winery construction was finished and the pinot noir was flying high amongst the punters and the press. The newsletter was a comprehensive brochure with lots of stories and photographs of our daily activities on the farm. The production involved graphic artist, printers and pricy postal expenses. The intensity of daily information and retail offers was far less than today and like most I get bombarded by dozens of wine offers every week. It is a dilemma for me. Each time I am about to send you a word or an offer, I realise I am adding to this flood of information that you have to sift through.

If you are receiving this it is likely you have been to the winery or we have met in my travels around the country. We aim to be the bearers of good news and good offers. My wine offer this month is somewhat different to usual, if you are interested in a box of Wedgetail, contact me via email [email protected] let me know your wishes and I will make you a personal Christmas offer that will fill your socks of joy.  Use the product area of the website to start your wishes!!

If our paths don’t cross during December, Dena and myself are wishing you the very best of health + luck = happiness… for the coming New Year.  We will be open again on Sunday 3rd of February (closed for January)

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.
