Glenlee Vineyard

GLENLEE VINEYARD
Close-planted in the Burgundian style, this site produces low crops if intense fruit.

Our Glenlee Vineyard was planted in 2003, by Californian visionary Gary Andrus. This site is close-planted with 6000 vines per hectacre on what was once a sheep station.

This vineyard's location and planting shows fruit clarity at its best, combining fragrance with concentration and structure. Wines from this site are intense, lifted and delicately spiced. This fruit is used in our single vineyard Glenlee Pinot Noir.
