Paul and Jill Buttery established the Gemtree vineyards in McLaren Vale in 1980. Now their daughter Melissa Brown (nee Buttery) is the Biodynamic Viticulturist and her husband, Mike Brown is the Chief Winemaker and Managing Director. For the Butteries and Browns it is not just about winemaking it is about setting new standards for sustainable, generational farming. They see themselves as custodians of the land and are committed to leaving it in a better condition than they found it.
|Wine||The full moon in June is known as the ‘Strawberry Moon’ to the Algonquin tribes of New England, appearing at the time of the strawberry harvest. Luna de Fresa translates as strawberry moon. At Gemtree, the moon influences harvest time too to produce beautifully balanced Tempranillo fruit. The resulting wine is bright pink, guava and orange on nose, with flavours of fresh strawberry, light and dry. A great quaffing wine, best served chilled.|
