The vineyard, the most westerly on Kangaroo Island is subject to a strong marine influence from the Southern Ocean, with mild summers, moderate rainfall and at times strong winds. Of recent years the rainfall weather pattern has been more unpredictable. The yields are typically low and being some of the latest to ripen on the Island produces some unique cool climate fruit characteristics.
The vineyard has traditional varieties with cabernet sauvignon and shiraz reds being planted in 1999 and the chardonnay and sauvignon blanc whites planted in 2003. There are approximately 1.6 Ha (4 ac) of cabernet, 3.2 Ha (8 ac ) of shiraz, 1.8 Ha (4.5 ac) of chardonnay and 1.4 Ha (3.5 ac) of sauvignon blanc.
