Within the vibrant cool climate region of Adelaide Hills is Mt. Lofty, where this vineyard sits at 500m above sea level. This cool climate vineyard has variable soil depth due to the sites unique topography, ranging from steep slopes to undulating hills, resulting in shallow stony soils to the top of hills and deep peat-like clays at the bottom of hills. Cool, eastern exposure allows for extended hang time, which imbues the grapes with greater complexity and character.
For one of the driest growing seasons on record, we produced a low yielding crop with high natural acid, developed flavours and wine colour.
