Standing the test of time
Mount Edelstone shiraz, planted 1912
These Exceptionally Old Vines serve as a witness to the Barossa’s resilience in the face of adversity. The Barossa, unlike many of the world’s great wine regions, is phylloxera free, which allowed these vines to mature into their thick, gnarly trunks and naturally sculpted forms without interference. Noted for their low yields, they produce fruit with intensity of flavour. Planted generations ago, when dry farming techniques demanded careful site selection, Centenarian Vines have truly withstood the test of time.
