Silent Way - Macedon Ranges
This is a busmans holiday for partners Matt Harrop and Tamara Grischy (and their three children, Jai, Ivy and Sofia), who purchased their small property in 2007, 10 years after they were married. They have planted 1.2ha of chardonnay, and buy semillon and pinot noir from the Quarry Ridge Vineyard at Kilmore.
The name comes from a Miles Davis record made in February 69, regarded as a masterpiece and one of the most inventive recordings of all time. The labels feature artwork originally created by friend Daniel Wallace for their wedding, turned into labels by friend Mel Nightingale. Earthworms, birds, snakes, friendship and love are the symbols for Silent Way.
