The terroir is beautifully suited to Shiraz at an elevation of more than 170 metres above sea level. Soils consist of a top layer of loam over orange clay with veins of buckshot gravel below.
The vineyard enjoys a dry, continental climate, with warm days that peak around 4:00 pm. North-South rows utilise drip irrigation so the vines can cope with the extreme summer heat. Cool nights and dominant South-west winds allow the vines to cool down at night promoting a long, intensity-building growing season that extends into March and April. These subtle nuances deliver a full-bodied style wine with a generous ripe nose, in typical Grampians elegance.
