The Philosophy

Keeping with Trevor’s traditional yet innovative approach to wine making, the King River Estate’s philosophy is built of the ‘old world’ ways. Wines are made naturally; it is Trevor’s belief that grapes should be left to their own accord, and that wild yeasts and natural fermentation make for far more complex, soft & textural wines.

In the last few years Trevor has implemented the use of Biodynamic practises. 

Life at King River Estate is based on several simple guiding principles:

  • To use Biodynamic practises for sustainable farming
  • To give a good balance of filtered light
  • The use of wild (natural) yeast
  • To use a basket press for softer extraction of juice from skins
  • To use high quality French oak 

It is this unique philosophy and Trevor’s passion and commitment to his winemaking that allows elegant wines of outstanding flavour and quality to materialise.
