Gate Block Shiraz

Pinnacle range

Our Gate Block vineyard is located in the hills that rise to the east of the township of Hahndorf producing consistently high quality Shiraz.

It is an ideal site for cool climate Shiraz with its high altitude that helps to preserve intense fruit characters, northerly aspect to capture ample sunlight and low vigour soils to encourage concentrated flavours. We select the best fruit from this site to produce a Shiraz of elegance, depth and generosity.
