Waverley is situated just to the east of Launceston, with a little bit of elevation, it is more influenced by the surrounding mountains, rather than the Tamar River.
This vineyard was planted in 2005, and we have farmed out ourselves since 2015. At the time, the owner had stepped away, and the vineyard was derelict. Naively, I went and knocked on the door of the owner, convincing him to let me take it on. Three clones of pinot were planted in this little vineyard, 114 & 115 make the majority of the harvest, and an unknown patch in the middle ripens much later. Super low yielding, around 2T/ha in 2021, it produces perfect, small bunches with heaps of flavour and natural acidity. 30% whole clusters in the ferment, this was pressed off nice and early to finish in barriques, a little bit of new oak, balance to second use. It spent 11 months in barrel, and is bottled without fining or filtration.

All of our single vineyard releases are 100% farmed, vinified & bottled by Ricky Evans and our small team at Woodlawn, our family farm - where we make our wine, and is home to our largest vineyard.
