The estates vineyards were established in 1987 with the super- premium, dry grown Cabernet Sauvignon vines now close to 30 years old and producing exceptional fruit at less than 4 tonne to the hectare. There are two Vineyards on the estate.
The ‘old-vine’ Cabernet Vineyard is situated in a sheltered valley, high up on the Leeuwin- Naturaliste ridge, protected from the strong winds and capturing the morning sunlight with the northeast exposure allowing early ripening. This, combined with free draining granite and laterite gravel soils creates a perfect microclimate for ripening of premium grapes to their fullest flavour.
