The shiraz is grown from one end of the site to the other. This means half is on the southern slope of the ridge, and half on the north. Fermennted separately in small batches, the differences are dramatic, and present wonderful blending options.

Two wines are produced, Ergo Sum is the premium label, taking the best barrels, and made with an eye firmly on the style of the northern rhone wines. Most often the south slopes provide the base, producing a powerful, savoury, cool climate wine of complexity and longevity.

Domenica is softer, still powerful, with a deep core of fruit and the structure to live for many years.

Again, both are traditionally made. Whole bunch inclusion is dependant upon the season, up to around 25% of the batch.

The remainder is lightly crushed, destemmed, then taken to an open topped concrete tank, where it usually sits for a few days prior to the commencement of fermentation. This takes about two weeks, with hand plunging the extraction technique employed. Taste and seasonal conditions will determine whether any post fermentation maceration is undertaken, then the wine is basket pressed, blended, and taken to barrel for maturation for around 21 months. The finest French barriques are used, around 25% new.  Ergo Sum is bottled under cork closure, and the Domenica under screwcaps. - Winery Note

Domenica sits 460m above sea level atop the granite ridge sweeping away to the south west of Beechworth. The wines are vividly reflective of their origin, a gripping mineral texture encasing the mature vine vitality of the varietals chosen to express it.

Winemaking is traditional. Taste is more important than numbers. The yeasts comes from the site, not a packet. Pressings, solids and lees all play their part completing the picture. The wines are carefully maintained in oak bariques before being bottled unfiltered.

Winemaker Peter Graham cut his teeth at nearby Giaconda, where he worked as assistant winemaker for thirteen years. During the early part of this time he completed a degree in wine science by correspondence through Charles Sturt University. - Winery Note
