This is another hillside vineyard planted in the 1960's adjacent to the Onkaparinga Valley. The soil here is notable by it's absence, just solid rock and shale prevail on this site and the vine roots have to work very hard to survive.
Planted in 1965, in 2 inches of rich red loamy top soil. The slab of pure rock that lies beneath limits the vigor of the vines and appears to concentrate all components of the fruit - flavour, colour, tannin. The vineyard produces a intensely complex and long-lived syrah. It is considered a ‘Grand Cru’.
