Background

The soils of Coonawarra consist of thin dark brown to dark grey clays interspersed with broken limestone fragments. The shallow soil overlies soft crumbly limestone at depths of as little as 10cm so that the vines effectively grow in limestone rock. The shallow soils restrict vigour & this, coupled with rigorous canopy management, allows us to control berry size and bunch numbers & thus eventual crop load. This control of crop level and berry size gives our winemakers the best possible starting material with which to create premium red wines. Our Coonawarra vineyard experience another early season for Vintage 2016. Our Coonawarra vineyard produced elegant well balanced Cabernet with intense flavour and colour. Merlot also ripened well and produced lively fruit driven wine. Crop levels were relatively low and the wines are expected to be long lived.
