The Ellis family vineyards lie in the Mount Gambier GI, located in the Kongorong area southwest of Mount Gambier. The proximity to the Southern Ocean provides the coolest maritime climate of mainland Australia, this cool climate extends the ripening of fruit throughout Autumn, ideal for accumulation of flavour and optimum ripening. The vineyards are planted in fractured Limestone, this flinty surface contributes to the mineral elements and the hint of gun smoke character in the wine.

“Wow. This is positively breathtaking, the complex spray of citrus flavours impacting the second the wine enters the mouth, and linger long after the finish. The citrus is unsweetened green grapefruit juice and zest, acidity a given but nonetheless playing an important role. Trophy Best White Wine Limestone Coast Wine Show ’17 not the least surprising. For the record, pH 2.83, titratable acidity 9.36g/l and residual sugar 6g/l.” – 98 Points & Special Value Wine James Halliday – 2017 Vintage Review
