The first Springflat came from our winery block vineyard. It is approximately 2.5 acres, sits on quartz buckshot clay soils and its production is around 2 tones per acre. Planted in 1988, it has now reached maturity and is capable of producing fruit of incredible depth of flavour.
Grilled or roast beef, big beefy stews, venison, Cheddar cheese.

The Struie sources fruit from the high altitudes of Eden Valley imparting delicate spice, white pepper and fruit characters. While the Barossa component displays a richer, deeper, more brooding flavour and intensity. The combined structure will reward extended cellaring.
The nose shows intense blackcurrant and cranberry fruit, and the subtle cedary cinnamon spice, barrel-ferment and oak derived aromas, violet and mint scents, as well as liquorice and chocolate smells. Interwined is this wounderful green edge that lifts the wine into a cool climate sepctrum which typifies the cold year. These aromas combine with some cassis, blueberry, and cranberry, with lingering mocha and plumy fruit and are just showing through amongst a long, intense vibrant, gritty fruit tannin finish.
Kay's are specialist traditional red wine makers utilising grapes from their own 22-hectare Amery Vineyard.
A rich, round, soft, voluptuous, fruit driven Shiraz with a hint of confectionery sweetness in the background. A very approachable full bodied combination of blueberries, plum, Ribena, mocha chocolate, spice box, vanilla and pepper fill the palate with pleasurable flavours and the balanced soft tannin finish has both length and persistence.
The Original Shiraz Vineyard is situated next to the Winery itself, some 7kms south-west of the Heathcote township. Planted in 1988 on Buckshot Quarts and Clay Shale, this vineyard is only small in size (5 acres), but is primarily responsible for some of the most intense flavours one is ever likely to put in ones mouth. The fruit from this yard was the fruit used exclusively for the original Springflat Shiraz wines (1991-1996), and has been the base wine for both the Shiraz Reserve and Duck Muck. This vineyard is unique. Only available in magnums.
