Neil and Heather Grace's vineyard has classic Watervale soils, red loam over limestone, with a westerly aspect. Grace's "dry-Grown" vineyard is hand-pruned and hand-picked and relies only on the natural rainfall. The limestone is able to retain moisture and assist the vine throughout periods of warm weather, almost drought-proofing in the summer months. Viticultural practices include vertical shoot positioning which not only encourages even ripening but provides important shade to prevent the impact of sunburn on the resultant wine.

Winery Tasting Notes
Pale straw in colour with a slight green tinge.
Delicate lime and citrus notes. Restrained with hints of lemon and fennel.
Fine with great length of acid, purity of fruit with lime and crisp balanced finish.
A perfect accompaniment to freshly shucked Coffin Bay oysters and Atlantic Salmon or King George Whiting.
Vibrant and flavoursome with zesty acid; this will soften with time. Enjoy now, or benefit from careful cellaring for 10+ years. An outstanding follow on from the highly awarded 2012 Vintage.
