The Vineyards

Situated on undulating terrain, the vineyards are located 300m above sea level. The properties are positioned within the Chittering Metamorphic Belt, which is 2.6-3.3 billion years old (some of the oldest soils in the world). Five broad soil types have been identified within the vineyards with the two major types being shallow duplex or gradational soils overlying weathered quartz-mica schist or gneiss rock and gravely loam over clay soils. Alluvial sediments border the Brockman River. All vines are in excess of twenty years of age and the varieties that have been planted include: Shiraz, Chardonnay, Verdelho and Viognier (first vineyard in WA to plant the variety in 1990).
