Some delightful feedback

It is always good to hear from people about our wine, it is important to us that you share our enthusiasm for She-Oak Hill wines and that you let us know that you do. Below are some recent comments:

….it does seem a bit crazy shipping wine from elsewhere when we live in the heart of the Margaret River region, but we had a couple of bottles of your wine with our friends in Daylesford recently and were just blown away by it. You should be feeling very proud of what you’ve created. SG

Thanks again, it (the ’08 Shiraz) is a really lovely wine. NM

Had to really restrain myself from overdoing my intake of the ‘08 on the last three visits to … the Farmer’s Arms Hotel in Daylesford. RT

Thank you very much for bringing the wine the other day. It was lovely to see you. We opened the Chardonnay (’09) last night and really enjoyed it. JB


Winter in the Vines

Morning dew

At She-Oak Hill we opt for labor intensive cane pruning of our vines to ensure balance and flavour enhancement of our wine. For the first time in 36 years Laurie has agreed to some assistance with the pruning. We have worked quite quickly through the old block and been blessed with reasonable weather conditions. The mornings can be cold and frosty but the dew on the wires and spider webs sparkled like diamonds last weekend as we worked to wrap the new canes down on the wires. Despite the hours pruning requires there is always time in the evening to enjoy the company of friends and some wonderful meals. On Saturday Russell’s lamb shanks and a beautifully balanced 2004 Passing Clouds were a true highlight.
