When the grapes are harvested and pressed, our job in the winery is to get out of their way. Really. Sound grapes from healthy clusters largely take care of themselves. If they need a little help now and then – fine – but we do nothing to coax: this style; that aroma; a “target flavour”.
Cliff and Gorge wines are straight up clean, honest expressions of the vineyard. We figure you want to taste the product of this land with no adulteration so we add nothing, nor take anything away that alters the flavours and aromas. That includes oak – you won’t find any oaked wines at Cliff and Gorge lest the pure flavour of the fruit be masked.
