Ceres

The first Ceres vintage was made in 2005, solely from the Inlet Vineyard. Ever since then the wine has been an 11 barrel blend 2 from Black Rabbit Vineyard and 9 from Inlet Vineyard. This proportion was chosen to reflect the relative sizes of the vineyards contributing to the Composition wine.

The Ceres wine brand is the result of a collaboration of brothers Matt and James Dicey. James Dicey is the viticulturalist for Mt Difficulty and the grapes from Inlet Vineyard are grown to the Mt Difficulty standard. This means a lot of hand care and attention and low yields to ensure concentrated and intensely flavoured grapes. Yields are restricted to a maximum of 6t/ha and all grapes are hand harvested.
