2018 Caledonia Australis Pinot Noir
|Producer||South Gippsland Wine Company, VIC|
|Status||Certificate Organic with Australian Organic Certified (ACO)|
Mark Matthews began working with Caledonia Australis in 2008 after acquiring the major vineyards and assuming day to day responsibility for managing vineyards and winemaking. In late 2009 the Matthews family also acquired both brands and stock thus turning Caledonia Australis and Mount Macleod into a small family domain. Caledonia Australis wines are made unashamedly with a natural and old world hand. The vineyard is dry grown and close planted with vine spacings of 1m and a fruiting wire at 50cm. The vines are entirely hand tended, and made with minimal additives or intervention.
