Our estate vineyard, together with the winery and cellar door, is located at Musk five minutes from the town of Daylesford in the Macedon Ranges. It sits on a steep, north facing slope with a top elevation of 770m ASL. Deep volcanic soil would suggest high vigor; but in addition to the soil being very well drained the cold temperatures and high winds assist keeping unnecessary vigor under control. Macedon is arguably Australia’s coldest grape growing region, this site is arguably the coldest in Macedon. These factors combine to produce wines of complexity and longevity. The Pinot Noir is delicate but typically shows great depth and complexity, the Chardonnay, which sits in the citrus spectrum, also carries stone fruit character. Racy acidity remains even after full malolactic fermentation, it is a new world Chardonnay that cellars particularly well.
