Practices & Techniques

We are constantly striving for best vineyard practices and are constantly trialling different ideas and methods, to maximise the potential of the vineyard. Our focus is quality and so the vineyard is managed by spur pruning & managing bud numbers to keep yields low, intensifying the flavours of the grapes. Soil health and water conservation is fundamental for sustainability. Our philosophy in the vineyard is sustainable viticulture so as not to upset the balance of nature. We see many natural insects and they help keep the unwanted pests under control. All the shelter belts surrounding the vineyards are planted to native species common to this area and this helps to provide habitats for the native birds and insects. We strongly believe all good wines begin in the vineyard. A good bottle of wine grows from the ground up.

Estate Vineyards / AVA

The soils at Pindarie are best described as red brown earths with underlying limestone (calcrete) that varies in depth. Extensive soil surveys were carried out prior to planting to select the appropriate sites for producing high quality wine grapes. Our belief is that wine grape varieties should be chosen to reflect the regionality, or emphasis on or as the French say “terroir”. The Western Ridge of the Barossa Valley’s terroir, is the combination of soil type & climate. The climate at Pindarie is best described as a warm continental climate, with a Mediterranean influence. The average annual rainfall is 460mm being winter dominant with an average grape growing season rainfall (October – March) of 160mm. The relative humidity during summer on average is low, reducing the risk of disease and the Mean January temperature is 22.5° Celsius. The mean July temperature is 10.1 Celsius. Natural vegetation grows between the rows as a cover-crop, which is then mowed in spring and left to mulch. In some blocks we allow the midrow vegetation to set seed before mowing to build up a seed bed of naturally occurring grasses.
