As a small vineyard with only 16,000 vines, and focussing on a handful of varietals — Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Pinot Gris, Merlot, Syrah, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Malbec — our ethos dictates low-yield and high- quality vintages that are sensual representations of our physical environment. Utilising dry-grown viticulture, we rely solely on the natural seasonal cycles to provide for our grapes with no irrigation, so our vines can’t help but be in tune with mother nature.
As the wine makers, we follow suit, hand pruning and picking our vines into open crates and using making techniques steeped in tradition. In this way we let our unique terroir reveal itself through the nuanced wines produced at Paroa Bay.
