About The Vineyard

Located in Koonunga on the flat floor of the Barossa Valley , this 12-hectare vineyard has old bush vine Grenache (planted mid-1970s) and Shiraz planted in 1976/77 and 1998/99.

New plantings in spring 2016 included Grenache to replace natural losses of old vines and a new Shiraz block. Drip irrigation was installed in 2015 to insure against drought in this warm, arid zone and to improve general soil health. However, water is used sparingly and strictly according to seasonal need, as well as availability of this precious resource.
