The new 2019 releases were all grown by myself near the town of Cowaramup, about 15 minutes north of the Margaret River township. I also lived on the property where the winery is also situated. The vineyard is separated into 3 large blocks and a smaller winery block. The vines are on their own roots and range in age from 23 years to 36 years. Shiraz (Syrah), Cabernet Sauvignon, Sauvignon Blanc. Chenin Blanc and Chardonnay are the varieties planted. Unirrigated from 2016 and with one large planting of Shiraz never irrigated. No herbicides or systemic chemicals have been used from when I took over in early 2017. The majority of the plantings are on predominantly sandy soils with varying amounts of gravel. More gravel/ ironstone rocks towards the top of the slopes. There are patches of sandy loam in the lower parts of the Sauvignon Blanc and Chenin Blanc. – Sam Vinciullo
