In 1997 Phil Sexton arrived in the Yarra Valley in search of altitude, aged soils, slopes of exposure, regular rainfall, cool to cold nighttime temperatures, and a gentle breeze off the protecting mountain ranges. Why? Because he wanted to grow fantastic Chardonnay and Pinot Noir fruit to make wines of purity and finesse, simple, textural and affordable.
