This vineyard is situated between the townships of Eden Valley and Craneford in the higher altitude cooler section of the Eden Valley region.
This area of Eden Valley produces very complex Shiraz wines that display hallmark characteristics, unique to cool climate Shiraz. It also produces superb Riesling with hallmark citrus intensity with perfect natural acidity.
The soils are typical grey sandy loams over weathered granite and solid granite bedrock and are typically slightly acid in nature with low fertility.
This vineyard is in excess of 45 years old, producing miniscule yields. Eden Valley is a very difficult region for vignerons to make returns with such low yielding vineyard, combine this with the scarcity of water has seen many vineyards uprooted. Fortunately for those vignerons that persevere the fruit quality can be outstanding. This vineyard produces Shiraz for our Remus and Riesling for Freya.
