Neil Prentice is making some cracking Pinot Gris & sparkling wines from up in the Whitlands High Plateau, at 750 metres above sea level & all farmed biodynamically.

Our little amphitheatre is the warmest site in the very cool region. The continental location gives cool evenings, which allows the vines to ‘rest’ at night and delays the accumulation of sugar whilst retaining acidity and building flavour. This prolonged ‘hang time’ due to delayed ripening is vital to the production of great wine, and helps create the featured structure and length of Holly’s Garden wines.’ – Neil

Neil has had a ‘Solera’ barrel running since 2007, of which he blends 30% with 30% 2 year old Blanc de Noir, 30% one year old Blanc De Noir & 10% new Chardonnay. Strawberries and grapefruit, beautiful acid and a stunning complexity.
