What’s all the fuss about Barossa Valley Shiraz and the dirt it grows in? The answer is everything…….
The Barossa Valley boasts a huge range of soil types which offers an equally huge variety of Shiraz wines influenced by this feature. There’s even a complete book written on the subject called BAROSSA SHIRAZ by Dr Thomas Gitgensohn.

The following interview with  Nicki Robins from the Barossa Grape & Wine Association’s Barossa Grounds Project, gives an excellent insight into why soil matters. She refers to our sub-region of Seppeltsfield and describes our vineyard soil type perfectly. Why not leave a comment and let us know if you can identify the characteristics described by Nikki when you enjoy our Barossa Valley Seize the Day Shiraz!
