2015 Eden Valley Marsanne Roussanne
Estate Family VineyardsBack to All
Marsanne and Roussanne, like Shiraz, are varieties that are native to France. We believe that our vineyard in Craneford is the perfect place to make a textural and delicious blend that is a little bit away from the mainstream. The vines are planted on a very hilly part of our vineyard, with soils that are very marginal, meaning the vines need to work hard to survive and therefore produce very small yields of intensely flavoured fruit.
Our Eden Valley vineyard lies just South of the small township of Craneford, at an elevation of 420m. As like our other Eden Valley locations, the soil and climate varies quite considerably to that of the Barossa Valley floor. It is generally wetter, cooler and the soils tend to be skeletal and minerally. Aspect also varies significantly, with rolling hills and valleys providing much site variation.
The Craneford Vineyard is tended to by our own viticulturalist, Peter Wild, who ensures utmost care is taken in every step of the vine cycle.
