Kirrihill work closely with the most dedicated Clare Valley growers to ensure the fruit meets the standards required to make the highest quality wine. Parcels are all picked and vinified separately in open top fermenters, while being treated to regular pumpovers, followed by a course of drain and returns to maximise the extraction of colour, flavour and tannin from skins. The batches are pressed off into a selection of French and American oak for malolactic and ten months maturation, softening the tannins and enhancing complexity. Parcels are then assembled into the finished wine, the aim being to achieve a balance of terroir, while buiding structure and achieving true elegance.

The state-of-the-art complex has an emphasis on environmentally sound practices, including the recycling of waste water and grape marc into organic mulch for the vineyards. "The winery was established in 1999 to capitalise on the opportunities for contract processing that arose as a result of the unprecedented level of vineyard development in the prior five years. Vineyard expansion had outstripped the processing capability of the industry, which created the demand leading to the construction of the winery ready for the 2000 vintage.

The winemaking skills of the team led by David Mavor are applied to fulfilling the needs of three types of activity

Contract processing of grapes to any stage of the production cycle including storage. Currently Kirrihill Wines processes fruit for many of the large Australian wine companies as well as smaller local producers. Great wine begins in the vineyard. Super premium wines can only be made with super premium fruit. At Kirrihill Wines the winemakers work closely with selected grape growers, including Kirribilly Viticulture, to ensure the fruit meets the standards required for the high quality wines.

Cutting edge trellising technology such as Vertical Shoot Positioning provides the perfect balance of shade and sunlight, resulting in grapes with intense colour and flavour. The latest vineyard water management and irrigation methods, such as deficit regulated irrigation practices, are also utilised to increase flavour concentration and assist in the production of award-winning wines.

At the gateway to the Clare township, Kirrihill have created a haven for those who want to indulge in the partnering of quality food and wine. The winery's cellar door, nestled among gum trees and overlooking the surrounding vines and countryside, provides the perfect introduction to a range of super premium wines. The traditional cellar door tasting can be followed by anything from a great coffee to a sumptuous meal in the adjoining restaurant, Salt n Vines Bar and Bistro. While always a pleasure, a bottle of Kirrihill wine takes on a new dimension when enjoyed on the restaurant's balcony overlooking the valley
