Over the last 90 years we have expanded our footprint in Australian wine regions, most recently purchasing a vineyard in Northern Heathcote. It is roughly 200 Acres of bearing vines and is currently 55% Shiraz and 45% Cabernet Sauvignon. Over the next two years we will graft most of the Cabernet Sauvignon to Shiraz, Grenache, Carignan, Mourvedre and Grenache Blanc.
We have been buying fruit from the region for about 8 years and are pretty excited about its potential. Grenache seems to be the key to giving charm and perfume to the reds.We have contracted quite a few vineyards with Shiraz, Grenache and Touriga and have Grenache Blanc, Fiano and Greco all coming to bear from 2018.
