Overview

This is a single vineyard Chardonnay from our premier vineyard, Hillcrest Road in Red Hill. 1.5acres of Chardonnay, hand picked, pressed straight to barrel.

Hillcrest Vineyard is leased from Paul and Louise Coronel, who planted the 3 acres in 1993. Given Paul’s engineering background the vineyard is not surprisingly meticulously set up. It is dry grown and managed for quality. As such we keep yields low, cropping at less than 2t to the acre. Being a small vineyard means that we can really focus on the detail. We both spend a lot of time in the vineyard and as they say “there is no substitute for footprints in the vineyard

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Circe is a partnership inspired by growing up on the Mornington Peninsula and a love of Pinot Noir.

Dan Buckle and Aaron Drummond met at Mount Langi Ghiran in 2007. After a vintage of Shiraz it was inevitable that the conversation would turn to any other varietal except Shiraz. With both of us growing up on the Mornington Peninsula, we were keen and curious as to what we could do with Pinot Noir from such great soil.

The name Circe derives from Homer and is a nice metaphor for the seductions – and perils – of Pinot Noir. Dan studied arts at university before realising it wouldn’t help him get a job. He then went on to oenology. At least his studies of the classics helped us develop a name. Good for something I guess?
