Hurley Vineyard

Kevin Bell & Tricia Byrnes

Kevin & Tricia are immersed in the task of showcasing what their three differing single vineyard plots or climats can express from their estate in Balnarring, perched on a crest of volcanic red clay covered by a topsoil of stony red-brown clay loam. Burgundy has clearly inspired them to this endeavour, not to mimic the wines from the Cote d’Or in terms of taste but to best demonstrate these single site, terroir-driven wines. Planted in 1998 and 1999, the estate has 3.43 hectares of Pinot Noir across three clearly defined climats; Lodestone, Hommage and Garamond.
