Our vineyard is set in the undulating hills of the McLaren Vale wine-growing region, and in close proximity to the sea, Mt Lofty Ranges, and less than an hour from Adelaide CBD. Blewitt Springs is home to some of the oldest vines in the region, has the highest altitude, highest rainfall, and coolest winters of the valley.
We work with nature rather than against it to boost the vineyards biodiversity. Our goal is to create a vineyard which is a self-regulating, natural ecosystem and our practices are foccussed on achieving this. Our Shiraz vines grow on ancient soil which is approximately 75 million years old. Our vines are hand pruned to reduce the risk of diseases and increase the quality of the fruit.
Our fruit is chemical free with minimal additives, and coupled with the ancient soils the vines grow in, adds to the terroir which influences the quality and taste of our wine. The benefit of organic wine means there are no chemical residues from insecticides and other synthetic chemicals.
Our organic viticulture practices and use of minimal water results in lower fruit yields, but the flavours are more intense and fruit quality is far higher.
The McLaren Vale Grape Wine & Tourism Association acknowledges the Kaurna people as the Traditional Owners of the Country where the McLaren Vale Region is situated today, and pays its respect to Elders past and present.
