Grey Sands is a small (3.5 Ha) family owned vineyard on the western edge of the Tamar Valley in Northern Tasmania. We have planted our vineyard to high density as is common in Bordeaux and Burgundy to take advantage of the low fertility soils. 8800 vines/Ha combined with hard pruning keeps our yield per vine down to less than 1 kg. We do not irrigate to encourage the vines to use the full soil profile tapping down through a layer of hard-pan to the moisture retentive clay beneath. Our vineyard is planted predominantly to Pinot Gris, Pinot Noir and Merlot. These varieties have been planted in blocks to take advantage of some soil and slope variations across our 14 Ha property. We have some experimental plantings of another dozen varieties which will shape some blends we have in mind for the future. – Description from Dragac
