The grapes are sourced exclusively from mature vines within a single hectare vineyard block called the Reed Vineyard. The vines are a mixture of Burgundian Chardonnay clones; predominantly they are clone 95, with some Mendoza and some clone 15. The fruit from this block has become renowned for delivering crisp flinty flavours. The carefully selected fruit is hand-harvested in order pick some as whole bunches, for additional complexity when vinified.
