The Vineyards

Within South Australia, Watkins owns 141 ha of vineyards across the cool climate regions of the Adelaide Hills and Langhorne Creek. The maritime influence created by the afternoon sea breezes allows fruit flavours to evolve without excessive sugar production. The limestone based soils found on our Langhorne Creek vineyard create wines of power and elegance with great varietal character. The Adelaide Hills vineyard takes advantage of elevation at 470 metres above sea level while an easterly facing slope allows the morning sun to gently ripen the grapes during even the heat of summer, thereby evolving powerful flavours and fine tannins with a trademark exceptional bouquet.
