About Brodie Estate
Brodie Estate – single vineyard, boutique winery
We are a family owned vineyard. The vineyard sits on silts and clays with tight gravels below. We follow organic practices and use only organic sprays on the vines. Plants have been grown without irrigation producing small succulent berries with intense fruit flavours and savoury characteristics. Our vineyard was planted in 2001 with 10 acres of Pinot Noir Dijon clones - 777, 667, 114, 115 and Clone 5.
Our winemaking philosophy is based on allowing the fruit to express itself in the wine with little intervention. We use selected and natural yeasts, gentle basket pressing and 30% new French oak Gillet barrels for maturation over 12 months. Our wine expresses soft tannins, a medley of fruits and a silky, sensuous expression, full in the mouth, spicy and savoury with good acid structure and length.
