Hope Forest, South Australia
Travis waits until he sees a blush of pink on the grapes and then picks.
Half of the pick is direct pressed and then he pours over the remaining whole bunches. Fermented for about a week, part in tank and part in barrels, to spend 18 months on lees and 9 in bottle.
No additions at all in the winery, Travis has put a huge amount go effort into improving efficiencies and impact of the winery on the environment. The winery is completely run on solar power aside from the gas forklift, all bottling materials are recycled, reconstituted sugar cane is used for cork, and is working towards eventually having a solar powered car too.
