Three classic varieties are grown on the 17 acres of our multi award winning vineyards. Semillon comes from our well drained ‘Creek Flat’ vineyard planted in 1982. The soil profile here is sandy aggregate loam topsoil over medium clay which results in ideal soil conditions for these varieties. Pinot Noir was planted further up the hill towards the winery on a similar soil profile and was also planted at this time.
We also pride ourselves on supporting long-standing relationships with local growers of high quality fruit from the Upper and Lower Hunter Valley. Additional Semillon is also sourced to complement our own, low yielding vines.
In conjunction with Hunter, we currently source small parcels of high quality fruit from other regions around Australia including Hilltops, Mudgee, Orange & Goulburn Valley, allowing us to to provide diversity and choice for our customers. Previously we have also picked in Tumbarumba, Barossa, McLaren Vale and Wrattonbully.
