Recognised by wine critic James Halliday as a five star winery, Night Harvest pools the talents and resources of three Margaret River wine visionaries. Viticulturist Andy Ferreira has almost twenty years of experience tending to some of the most prized vines in Margaret River. Grower Rob Tincey has long produced grapes that are amongst the most flavoursome in the region. And wine lover Ray Anderson is the third inspiration in the partnership, looking after the commercial aspects of the enterprise. With Andy's extensive experience of viticulture in Margaret River, he has long been an advocate of the benefits of the 'night harvest', and this is the overriding philosophy in the production of all our wines. In the cool of the night, optimum harvest conditions prevail – sugar levels are balanced, the grape's natural aromatics are at their peak, and the cool environment for transport allows the fruit to arrive at the winery as fresh as it was when it was picked. The result is wines that are a marriage of aromatic freshness and harmonious complexity of flavor.
