Tellurian Wines vineyard is on the western slopes of Mt Camel Range, overlooking the township of Toolleen.

The original Tellurian vineyard was planted in 2003 with 5.6 ha of shiraz vines, with a further 3.6 ha of Shiraz were planted in 2006.

The ancient 500 million year old Cambrian soils of the Toolleen area of the Heathcote region combined with viticultural practices that focus on optimising fruit quality from each vine provide the base building blocks for Tellurain wines.
WINEMAKER NOTES: Deep crimson-red colour. The nose displays charcuterie notes, slightly chary oak, and expressive dark fruit. The medium bodied palate is round and plush with dark fruit, and blackberry combining with and spice and soft tannins, making it a wine that's very approachable in its youth.

VINEYARD: Block 2 and Block 3 of our Tellurian vineyard growing on Cambrian soils formed over 500 million years. Deep, rich, decomposed greenstone rock and limestone with soil depths up to 2m allow roots to reach deep, while relatively low fertility controls vigour and yield.

WINEMAKING NOTES: Grapes fermented in 4-5 tonne open top concrete and stainless steel tanks between 11 to 15 days on skins, with hand plunging or pump overs once to twice per day. Matured for 10 months in approx. 90% French oak and 10% in American oak barriques, prior to filtration and bottling. Seasoned oak (no new oak), allows full fruit expression in an early drinking style.
