The Garden Vineyard

We lease the Garden Vineyard (38º 16’ 28.79” S, 145º 06’ 13.12” E), which is a small vineyard a stone’s throw from the McIntyre vineyard. This is planted to Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris. The “house block” Pinot Noir is a small north facing slope. The “back block” is west facing (Pinot Noir) and south-west facing (Pinot Gris). The vines are less vigorous on this poorer soil, the clay sub-soil being denser and less vine root friendly.
