The first established was the 24 hectare Lenswood vineyard in 1994, which meanders over small hills and into valleys.
Lenswood is undulating, at the higher altitude of the four vineyards, and carries a huge variety of natural vegetation. With under half of the property cleared, Lenswood constitutes a number of small vineyards separated by tracts of natural scrub which is heritage listed.
Varieties Planted at Lenswood include:
- Sauvignon Blanc
- Pinot Gris
- Cabernet Sauvignon
- Pinot Noir
Lenswood is the highest altitude vineyard (circa 500m). There is, of course, no Shiraz and only a tiny block of Cabernet. This is the highest and therefore coolest and wetest of our vineyards.
Row spacing: 2.1m
Canopy: Vertical Shoot Positioning (VSP) with spur pruning and cane pruning for Sauvignon Blanc
