This vineyard is located in the rolling hills of Blewitt Springs, an elevated area east of McLaren Vale and the furthest from the Sea. The region has the highest altitude, highest rainfall and coolest winters of the valley. Our vines are positioned on undulating hills with deep sandy soils and are trellised to the single wire in order to control the canopies and protect the grape bunches from raising. Deep sand is beneficial for drainage but also copes well in drought conditions and assists in light reflection during ripening. In wet years the crop must be ‘bunch thinned’ in order to increase concentration of flavours and control yield. Sub surface drains have been installed in the gullies to prevent water logging of vine roots in early spring in years of high rainfall.
