Vineyard

Sitting on the ocean floor some 20,000 years ago, only to be reclaimed as land by millennia of volcanic activity, Geelong’s Moorabool Valley sub-region is made up of a tough limestone and basalt base, which forms this sub-region’s unique terroir; providing ideal free-draining soil for our grapevines.

Moorabool Valley’s cool climate is largely continental by nature but still moderated to some extent by its proximity to the ocean, providing perfect conditions to grow world-class wines. All vines are planted north–south, trained vertically, and canopies are managed to provide sufficient light and air into the fruit zone, maximising quality and vine health. Judicious irrigation is applied during the growing season to maintain healthy vine growth to assist even ripening, which is the key to quality fruit.

Vinification

Sourced entirely from our vineyard, fruit was picked in the cool of night and largely de-stemmed to open fermenters for a warm soak before ferment kicks in with indigenous yeast. Berries receive gentle maceration during ferment, pressed lightly after drying, then settled for a few days before racking to well-seasoned, tight-grain French oak barrels of which 40 per cent are new. This leads to better fruit/ oak flavour integration. After malolactic fermentation in barrel, SO2 is added for colour stabilisation. The wine is kept in a cool temperature-controlled cellar and regularly topped until the following January, when each barrel is tasted – looking for only the best barrels to be blended together. In 2018, the clonal mix was 46 per cent MV6, 28 per cent 114 and 26 per cent D2V6. Wine was blended, filtered and bottled in February 2019.

Season

With plenty of moisture in the ground and moderate weather conditions through spring and early summer, the vines enjoyed ideal growing conditions early. Flowering in November was quick, and the ensuing berry set was good, despite heavy rainfall late November. Yields were average with plenty of bunches, though lower in weight. A relentlessly hot summer and minimal rain made an early start to vintage with swift completion. Pinot picking commenced on 22 February 2018, with the last batch picked on 9 March 2018. Most batches came in around 24.0 brix and lower than average acidity at approximately 5.5 g/L. The average yield was moderate at 4.5 t/ha.

How can I track my online order?

You should have received a tracking link via email when your ordered was dispatched. If you didn’t receive this, please contact us and we can track your order for you.

How much is shipping?

We have recently updated our shipping policies. We want to be an inclusive business and ship to everyone in Australia, however after reviewing our shipping costs we couldn't financially sustain some shipping to regional areas. Due to the weight of wine, we found that delivery to certain regional areas was costing us more than the value of the order. Our new shipping costs and policy is listed below. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me.

Cheers,

Belinda Austin, owner 6Ft6 Wines

      How do I choose the right wine?

      All our wines are semi-dry to dry styles. Each of our wine product pages have tasting notes for your reading pleasure. If you’re still unsure, reach out via social media for a personalised recommendation.

        My wine was damaged when it got here, what do I do?

        Bummer! On the rare occasion, our wine can be damaged in transit, like most other online products. If this is the case, send us a photo of your wine and your delivery address and we’ll get your wine resent.

          I’m getting married/hosting a large event – can I get your wines at a discount for purchasing in bulk?

          You sure can! Contact us to receive a price ist.

            I want wine right now, where can I get it from?

            Our wine is available in over 2,000 retail outlets throughout Australia including Dan Murphy’s, BWS, Vintage Cellars, Liquorland, IGA Liquor, Cellarbrations and all good independents. Like always, please contact your local store directly to be 100% sure.

              What’s your privacy policy?

              We will never share your information with any third party. Who is a third party you ask… well, the first is you, and the second is us. So, we’ll keep everything between us. Read the full Privacy Policy here

                Where should I store my wine?

                In a cool place is great! A constant temperate of 14 degrees is the optimal conditions. The most important thing is to have no sudden fluctuation in temperature. So, under the bed, bottom of a cupboard, in a cellar, etc. Not in an attic.

                  Where is 6Ft6 wine made?

                  90% of our wines are proudly single vineyard (we source Prosecco and some Pinot Gris from the King Valley), meaning our wine is grown, produced and bottled onsite based out of our home in the Moorabool Valley. Read more about our vineyard here.

                    Who makes 6Ft6 wine?

                    Our Chief Winemaker, Duncan Lowe. Learn more who makes up the team at 6Ft6 here.

                      How long will the wine last?

                      Tricky question as this is very wine dependent, although, luckily for us both, we make our wines ready to consume. For our red wines (Pinot Noir and Shiraz), you may gain some benefit from cellaring for up to 10 years in storage.

                        I own a business; do you wholesale your wine?

                        Yes, we love supporting businesses of all shapes and sizes. Please contact us for a wholesale price list. 

                          How do I make cocktails using your wine?

                          We’re glad you asked, as we’ve been busily testing recipes for you to try at home. Get the Mixed book of Cocktails here

                            Are your wines vegan-friendly? 

                            Absolutely! We only use plant-based proteins (pea and potato) to clarify our wines. 

                              What if I don’t like the wine?

                              Unfortunately, we can’t refund based on taste (i.e. you typically like sweet Moscato though you bought a dry Chardonnay), however if you feel your wine isn’t up to its usual standards and not worth the investment, please let me know and we will happily provide you with a refund. Refer to our Good Times Guarantee for more information. 

                              Still need help? No worries… please contact us

                                6Ft6 | Good Time Guarantee

                                We are very confident in the quality of our wines that we have this Good Times Guarantee. If for any reason you feel the quality of the wines is not up to standard, we ask that you do these following steps to enable a refund:

                                1. Notify us within 30 days of your delivery that you will like a refund. Any feedback during this time would be appreciated.
                                2. We'll send you a return shipping label and you can book in a pick up address and time that suits you.
                                3. Upon inspection of the goods returned, if they are in the same condition as to how they were sent*, we will issue a refund to you.

                                *’Same condition to how they were sent’ simply means – no damaged labels, wine must have been stored in appropriate temperature conditions (not in a freezer or in direct sunlight or in damp conditions). The shipment is to be sent back in the original box and include the empty bottle of wine you have consumed to ensure the package is shipped safely.

                                If you are purchasing a vintage for the second time after using your good times guarantee previously on the same vintage, this guarantee will no longer be applicable.

                                Our Good Times Guarantee is applicable to the quality. If you are unsure if you will like the wine, find your wine style here or please email or message us and we will be more than happy to help! Unfortunately, the Good Times Guarantee does not apply to change of mind or dislike due to personal taste. 

                                If for some reason the wine was delivered to you damaged, simply take a photo of the stock and we will send a replacement.
