About Winery and Wines
The first plantings were undertaken in a small 0.4 hectare vineyard site which now supplies the premium Shiraz “Dons Acre”.
This initial planting was undertaken to test the suitability of the site, and encouraged by the results, 2 years later more land was purchased from the adjacent property and the main “Stags Leap” vineyard was established.
This larger vineyard had 3 hectares planted to Shiraz and 1 hectare planted to Riesling.
Considerable care was taken in laying out the vineyard to take advantage of the afternoon sun, particularly during the slightly cooler ripening period found in late March and early April. The Western aspect of the site has proven to be ideal for producing fruit of the highest standard.
Attention was also paid to the existing native vegetation, with the vineyard being constructed in such a way as to avoid disturbing the existing native habitat.
The huge gum tree right in the middle of the Stag’s Leap Vineyard is an arresting feature and thought to be hundreds of years old.
It features in a lot of our promo pictures and is an idyllic place for a BBQ and a nice Shiraz during Spring.
