Halliday Winery Review

This is the venture of Allen (now full-time winemaker) and Andrea (viticulturist) Hart. Having purchased the property in 1998, the planting of shiraz, riesling, tempranillo, grenache, chardonnay and marsanne began in 2000 (0.2ha of touriga nacional added in Õ16 and arinto and azal in Õ20). Given AllenÕs former post as research scientist/winemaker with FosterÕs, the attitude taken to winemaking is unexpected. The estate-grown wines are made in a low-tech fashion, without gas cover or filtration; the Harts say, ÔAll wine will be sealed with a screwcap and no DogRock wine will ever be released under natural cork barkÕ. DogRock installed the first solar-powered irrigation system in Australia, capable of supplying water 365 days a year, even at night or in cloudy conditions.
