The key vineyard is Jindawarra Vineyard, which is located south of Karridale and currently has34.6 hectares of vineyard planted. With north facing slopes and soils of gravelly loams it is the ideal site for premium and super premium winegrapes. Planted in the year 2000 the vines are mature, balanced and of moderate vigour. The vineyard is only 6 kilometres from the Southern Ocean and 4 kilometres from the Indian Ocean and avoids extreme temperatures as a result of the cooling sea breezes.
Premium cabernet sauvignon is sourced from our Willyabrup managed vineyard. Plantings on our Jindawarra vineyard are: 11.3 ha’s shiraz, 8 ha’s gingin clone chardonnay, 6.3 ha’s sauvignon blanc, 3 ha’s pinot noir droopy clone, 2.1 ha’s viognier and 3.9ha’s Pinot Gris.
Glen’s plan includes a hands on approach to vineyard management through to final production, to produce outstanding value for money wines. Winemaker – Andrew Vesey.
