Newlans Lane Vineyard
Size: 10.2 hectares
- Shiraz 8 ha
- Viognier 1.5 ha
The vineyard was initially planted in 1978. Over time, shiraz has become the dominant variety as the Heathcote Region found its place. The Mail Coach shiraz is predominantly derived from here. The wine reflects the vineyard’s maturity, with successive vintages producing consistently high quality shiraz reflecting only seasonal variations. All vines are drip irrigated, however water is used judicially and only when required to maintain vine health during prolonged periods of dry or heat.
Two of our premium shiraz – The Wilkins Shiraz and The Origin Shiraz – are sourced entirely from Newlans lane, making them both a genuinely “single vineyard” wine
