“At Shadowfax we want our vineyards to express their own unique characters and the wine grown there to talk to the one who’s drinking it, by telling its own story. The grapes grown must reflect the site, thus each vineyard site must be grown depending on its own requests. If you look, listen and taste (both grape, vine and soil) the vineyard will tell you its needs and wants.
Whether that be some foliage manipulation, fruit thinning or it may be screaming out for a little drink, we will act. We are not afraid of new ideas, experimentation, trials and tribulation, whilst having a ball doing so. We want the vineyard to do the talking using the wine glass as its stage.”
