2019 Waterfall Block Shiraz
Waterfall Block is the newest addition to the Single Vineyard stable, and a very unique and interesting vineyard, close to the Adelaide CBD.
Waterfall Block is 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.
VINE AGE: 27 years
AVERAGE RAINFALL: 550mm
SOIL TYPE: Shallow red clays over deep deposits of slate, shale and limestone
