Husband and Wife Team Does It All
Holm Oak Vineyards was established in 1983, and takes its name from the Holm Oak trees planted on the property.
The vineyard is leased by Rebecca and her husband Tim Duffy. Rebecca is a qualified winemaker with 10 years of winemaking experience including vintages in McLaren Vale, Coonawarra, Napa Valley and Western Australia. Tim is an agronomist with extensive viticultural experience.
Holm Oak is one of the few smaller family owned wineries who grow, make and bottle their own wines on site. This allows for greater individuality of the wines as they have full control of their wines from the vineyard through to the bottle. The individual attention that they are able to devote to each parcel of fruit ensures that each wine has its own unique personality.
The Holm Oak Pinot Gris is a wine that has beautiful lifted pear and jasmine characters on the nose with some hints of creamy, leesy characters underneath. Whilst the powerful palate is packed with flavour, it also has added complexity and weight as a result of the wild barrel ferment The wine finishes with lovely crisp natural acidity.
