The Strathbogie Ranges are located approximately 150 km north-east of Melbourne, Victoria. The ranges are defined by two large and connected, elevated granitic landscapes, the Eastern and Western Strathbogie Ranges. Our Strathbogie and RS Rieslings come from two different vineyards, situated in Caveat and Avenel.
Avenel – Strathbogie Riesling
On the Western face of the Strathbogie Ranges, surrounded by rolling hills and huge granite boulders, this vineyard sees long cool mornings and warm afternoon sun, producing fruit with a distinctly different profile from our original Riesling vineyard. Each season, we continue to learn more about the nuance and personality of this maturing site.
Area: 8 Acres
Aspect: North West
Soils: Decomposed granite with pink quartz
Caveat – RS Riesling
We have always been overwhelmed by the presence of our Caveat vineyard in the Strathbogie Ranges. A supposedly sealed road that wanders north from Yea climbing to the elevated granite soils that sit 600m above sea level. Generally 5 degrees cooler than the valley floor, this small vineyard is surrounded not by other vineyards but rather an unforgiving grazing land.
Area: 5 Acres
Aspect: South East
Soils: Decomposed granitic sandy loam
