Elevation - 140m above sea level
Soil type - Grey clay loam over heavy clay
Aspect & planting direction - Planted north-south on a northern facing slope.
Vine age - Sauvignon blanc planted in 1995
Management - Conventionally managed with a view to sustainability
Notes - Summerhill vineyard would have to be one of the valley’s darker horses. Grey soils, that make for a powerful but less fruit driven style of sauvignon blanc, good vine age & a prized location in the cooler, higher surrounds of the upper Yarra all add up to produce a profound & delicious wine.
