Lindsay Corby started his time in wine as a viticulturalist with some of the more interesting wineries – starting with Baileys of Glenrowan, Tamar Valley Wines and Tarrawarra Estate. His passion and interest in the geeky stuff – rootstocks, clonal variations, research into monoterpenes, amelioration of smoke taint, effects of tannins in secondary fermentation to name a few, provides an extraordinary canvas for his wine making.  As does his work as a lecturer in wine production.  Quiet, humble yet fastidious and contemplative Lindsay has set about to make wines to a budget, yet these are subtle, well balanced, elegant wines. These wines show complexity and interest. He also makes Corby Pinot Noir from Gippsland.
