It produces a range from Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Sémillon, Viognier, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Shiraz, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, Pinot Noir, Malbec and Mourvèdre grapes. The estate also comprises 10ha planted to olives, various dining alternatives including a restaurant, a children's activity centre and a residential estate.
