Justin strive for balance in everything, and that’s truly his approach to winemaking. The majority of grapes used are estate grown, but he continues to source grapes from across the region from carefully chosen vineyards. Justin seeks out fruit from different soil profiles create more complex wines and looks for specific characteristics to compliment the flavor profile he is striving to achieve for each wine.
