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.Matt Dicey is the wine maker for Mt Difficulty wines. Wines from both Black Rabbit and Inlet Vineyard are now included as part of the Mt Difficulty estate Pinot Noir. To create the Ceres blend the barrels most representative of both the vineyard and season are selected to be part of the 11 barrel blend.
