Located in the Upper Varra Valley, the Wandin Vineyard established in 2001 sits on soils composed of red volcanic ironstone

The vineyard faces due North with a gentle downward slope and provides good drainage and run off in the case of heavy rains. Due to its northerly aspect the vineyard is subject to an even balance of sunlight from morning until night on each side of its rows. This allows for the fruit to fully ripen within the standard growing period.

SOIL

Located in the upper King Valley in the sub-region of Cheshunt lies the vineyards of our newly released Mediterranean varieties. Two vineyards, one planted in 1980 and the other in 1992 sit on soils composed of rich brown and red clay loams.

CLIMATE

The altitude of the Upper King Valley creates long summer days and cool nights, which enable grapes to achieve flavour ripeness and a cool climate character. The region is renowned for longer and warmer ripening periods during autumn compared to other cool climate regions which presents ideal conditions for Mediterranean varieties.

WINES

Home of our new Mediterranean wines – Sangiovese and Barbera. Wines from these vineyards tend to be medium to full bodied, showing great structure and length.

CLIMATE

The climate and soils in the Pyrenees have proved to be very suitable for the production of high quality red wines. Located outside the town of Landsborough, The Malacoff Vineyard is subject to Dry autumns with cool nights which make for ideal ripening conditions. The vineyard sits at approximately 300 metres above sea level and is northeast facing

WINES

Low yields combined with smart viticulture make grapes of wonderful balance, which retain their acidity whilst still achieving sugar & flavour ripeness. The resultant wines are deep, concentrated & complex with firm tannins whilst still being very approachable in their youth
