Christo’s Paddock, Langhorne Creek

Across premium soil, just off the Angus River in the Langhorne Creek Region is Christo’s Paddock, named after Mark’s son Christo, who loves tractors and all things on wheels. Christo’s vines are our oldest, being planted in 1989 into free-draining thick, brown, loamy sand over a red brown sandy clay loam, which are calcerous at depth. 

We like to think our vines need us, but our Shiraz, Cabernet and Malbec vines here basically take care of themselves these days, receiving minimal irrigation and naturally producing low yields of small, flavourful berries in open bunches.  Input is minimal, but the output is highly sought after fruit, from which we keep a small proportion to make our premium Langhorne Creek reds.
