This vineyard was planted in 1925 and is located on the upper belly of a 45 degree hill, which curves from due-east through south-east, to almost due-south. The vineyard was named after its location within the Blewitt Springs area. The mid-hill positioning and the age of these fine vines makes for a true ‘Premier Cru’.
