BAIE Wines vineyard is located in the Bellarine Peninsula and is strongly influenced by the maritime cool climate. The vineyard is bound to the North directly overlooking Port Phillip Bay, and the 16-year-old vines are grown on coastal loam, with a clay loam subsoil. Our wines are made from domain grown fruit in Curlewis, Bellarine Peninsula Geelong at a Latitude – 38.163354 and Longitude 144.542334. Our philosophy of viticulture and winemaking is to best represent our geology, climate and the grape growing season of that year respectfully, consistently and honestly. All stages of fruit development, such as pruning and canopy management, are overseen by Simon and Peter to retain the integrity of the vineyard and season and nurture each wine’s personality. We work on the simple principles that wines begin in the soil. Each year we work on assessing and managing requirements of soil, vine health, rainfall and protection from sun and wind to ensure an approach to grow the best fruit possible.
The Pinot Noir grapes are hand-picked and cold soaked on skins until the desired colour hue is achieved. The grapes are then pressed and the free fun is juice is fermented in stainless tanks using wild yeast to ensure ideal flavour and texture are achieved. During the fermentation process, 30% of the wine is fermented in old French barriques which ensures structure. To finish the wine goes through malolactic fermentation which adds balance to the wine. The wine is fined and filtered before bottling in June 2016.
The 2018 growing season has been a cracker. Solid earlier rainfall and warm summer and autumn temperatures have seen an abundant and balanced crop with excellent ripening. This translates to stunning flavours in the fruit with the Pinot Gris being harvested first in early March and the Sauvignon Blanc and Shiraz harvested mid to late March respectively. Overall a strong vintage, wines in oak and tank were vibrant, with good acidity and freshness.
