The Slopes Vineyard

MV Slopes Vineyard-942

As its name indicates, this vineyard spreads over a number of slopes. The Slopes lie on the hills overlooking the Brancott Valley. 

The 75ha vineyard is planted in Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Gris, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.
For its size, the site offers dazzling complexity – from riverbeds all the way to slopes that face an array of different orientations.

The Slopes vineyard fruits are grown on the flats and north-facing slopes across a range of soils. Made up of windblown and friable silt loam with clay loam and loess beneath, these soils are typical low-vigour soils. The x-factor of the north-facing slopes maximising sun exposure enables these vines to naturally produce lower crops, which gives us an intense array of flavours and wonderful balance.
