Pinot Noir grapes April 2014
Lane's End Vineyard derived its' name as a result of being located at the end of a country road called Mount William Road. Mount William Road winds its way around the foothills of the Macedon Ranges town of Lancefield in Victoria Australia.
Lane's End Vineyard was originally planted in the mid 1980's.
Located at 580 metres above sea level on the southern slopes of the Great Divide, the vineyard is perfectly suited for the growing of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir.
Here's their story
"Our philosophy is very simple ... to produce the best possible fruit from our vineyard and with minimalist intervention turn these into the highest quality wine possible.
Results came a little sooner than anticipated with our first Barrell fermented Chardonnay, the 2005, winning gold medals at numerous wine shows and the Laurie Williams Trophy for Best Wine of Show at the Macedon Ranges Wine Exhibition in 2008.
We have seen that by harnessing the great potential of our fruit, we can make wines that compliment foods and our lifestyle.
