WELCOME TO THE BAROSSA VALLEY
EVERYTHING BEAUTIFUL COMES FROM THE HEART
Our home – the Barossa Valley. We live in the heart of it. A small, beautiful place tucked on the southern edge of the great Australian continent. We started making wine here in 1985, and although we have won much praise and accolades along the way, we can be regarded as a relative newcomer.
We respect and celebrate the rich history of the Barossa Valley, and are proud to be a part of it. But it is the future where we thrive. We capture the heritage of the Barossa Valley and bring it to today. We take all that we have learnt and create exciting wines from the Barossa Valley – wines capturing the distinctive elegance, finesse and vibrant fruit flavours of this special place.
We only make red wines. In fact we only make Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon and Grenache Shiraz Mourvèdre, because if history has taught us anything, these are the Barossa Valley’s greatest wines.
Welcome to the Barossa Valley. We invite you to experience the wines that made it great.
ONE OF THE WORLD'S MOST CELEBRATED WINE REGIONS
This small wine region nestled on the southern edge of Australia has become one of the world¹s great wine regions.
Along the foothills of the Barossa Valley, a tapestry of ancient friable red clay loams combine with a warm and dry climate to create a unique environment for vines to develop fruit that has a vibrancy and depth of flavour like nowhere else on earth.
The soils of the Barossa Valley tell the story of an ancient continent. Ancient events have contributed to create a tapestry of mineral abundant, ancient friable red clay loams which lay across the Barossa Valley. Amongst the oldest in the world, the Barossa Valley soils provide a unique environment for viticulture. Their mineral rich content and moderate fertility restricts vine vigour and contributes to the growing of concentrated fruit.
A pocket in the great continent of Australia, the Barossa Valley has its own warm climate, experiencing higher sunshine hours and less humidity than either Bordeaux or Burgundy, perfect for grape growing and ripening.
A combination of these warm climatic conditions and unique soils further contributes to the moderation of vine vigour and keeps the berries small with low yields, resulting in enhanced fruit concentration.
