The fruit for Trait Wines is sourced from a 2.7 hectare vineyard mere kilometres from Margaret River’s town centre in the south west corner of Western Australia. Planted in 1988, the site is sloping and the vines close-planted, meaning that the aid and intervention of machinery is impossible. Everything requires the touch of hands. Due to the age of the vines, production is not vigorous, hence the quality of the fruit is concentrated and the yields are low. The property is a white wine vineyard, planted with Chardonnay, Chenin Blanc, Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon.
