Our Vineyards

Georgiadis Estates Vineyard

This vineyard is situated in Marananga on the golden mile of the Barossa Valley, or as the Rodeo Drive of the Barossa as Paul likes to refer to it. The vineyard was planted in 1995 for the aim of producing premium wine grapes to service Penfold’s Icon wines.

Soils vary across the vineyard from red-brown loams over red clay, with ironstone to red-brown loams over clay and limestone. At the top of the hill you can see sand over yellow clay combined with buckshot iron stone. The vineyard altitude ranges from 250-290m above sea level which fortunately protects the vineyard from any severe frost events. Irrigation is only applied during critical stages of phenology to ensure ideal physiological ripeness.

Everything in our vineyards is managed with a level of ‘attention to detail’ to ensure the best results possible. Technology is used to measure moisture at various levels in the soil profile, which allows us to make well informed decisions based on observation and scientific data.

Paradigm Vineyard

The vineyard is in the heart of Marananga in the renowned Western Ridge of the Barossa Valley. This vineyard was purchased in 2011 and the aged vines – ranging from 50-90yrs old have been rejuvenated to produce some of the best Cabernet and Shiraz in the Barossa Valley.

Soils are predominantly red-brown loams over red clay, with shattered ironstone and quartz, whilst the vineyard altitude ranges from 280-320m above sea level. The vineyard is predominantly non-irrigated, but strategic irrigations are applied in winter so that during the dry seasons there is reserve moisture at depth.
