At Tobin Wines we talk about growing the wine rather than making the wine.
Our philosophy is based on the fact that superb fruit quality makes for outstanding wine therefore we have minimal interference in the wine making process.
Our production is limited to between 100 to 150 cases of each varietal every year.
We have great belief in the French concept of 'terrior', as the French say a 'sense of place where the grapes grow'...that sense of place is the micro-climate in the vineyard or even within a patch of grapes.
Temperature, humidity,sunlight,wind,rainfall,aspect and soil type....it is this combination of factors which is responsible for the wonderful flavour characteristics inherent in a particular patch of grapes.
In a single vineyard situation those characters will change from year to year depending on the seasons.
Tobin Wine took great pain to select a site for our vineyard with north facing slope, granitic free draining soils in Ballandean, the heart of the Granite Belt.
The best part of the last decade has been spent guiding the vines to maturity and ability to produce premium fruit quality.
Our Limited Edition wines reflect that 'sense of place' making them truly unique.
