2018 Waterfall Block Shiraz
A complexing steep site that needs to be seen to be believed: It has many short steep rows that are protected from the early morning light from the highest point of the Mount Lofty Ranges behind and again by the searing late day sun from a steep hillside to the north. This is an amazing micro climate that allows the low-yielding vines to ripen at their leisure with a canopy that keeps moving along with minimal stress.
Soil: Shallow red clays over deep deposits of slate, shale and limestone
Row orientation East to West
Vine age: 26 years old
Sub district: Burnside,Adelaide
