Pt 1. Moothi Estate

Welcome to Moothi Estate vineyard.  6km South-East of Mudgee, NSW, Australia.  This gravelly block rests above granite and ironstone and has north, east and western aspects that roll down to the Lawson Creek.

It’s the second week of April and 4-5 days into the new moon.  We’ve just started hand picking some brilliant Cabernet Sauvignon to go towards our Cab/Petit Verdot blend.  This particular harvest will continue for another week before we start the ferment.  That’s Chino resting in the back, short for cappuccino.  He’s well seasoned to vineyard life after travelling most of the way around Australia from the Barossa Valley up around the west coast of W.A. down to the chill of Tasmania and the journey continues…

    Andrew (Captain Snooze), you are a gifted and talented man and these traits will shine through, I have no doubt. Very much looking forward to the end result and keeping up with what’s happening on here. I wish you all the very best with your wine making and may the stars shine on you always. xo
