150 Year Old Vines Field Blend:
The Barossa Old Vine Charter was instituted to register vineyards by age, so that older vines could be preserved, retained and promoted. The grapes for this wine come from a single vineyard in the Springton sub-region of the Eden Valley planted as a field blend of Grenache, Mourvèdre and Malbec in 1858. These low yielding "Barossa Ancestor Vines" have stood strong and proud for more than one hundred and fifty years and are a living tribute to the Barossa's early European settler. We believe this to be the oldest Single-Vineyard Field Blend in the world.
The Barossa is home to some of the oldest vines in the world our old vines series is an opportunity to experience wines made from vines aged between 50 and 165 years. With power and fortitude these vines stand, having survived drought, frost and heat and proven their ability to produce top quality wines for decades.
Only produced in minute quantities due to the scarcity of such ancient vines.
