Vineyard: Pannoo

Starting at 350 meters altitude, Pannoo vineyard is one of the highest vineyards in the state. 

The entire vineyard is a northeast-facing site that enables consistent ripening and receives cooling easterly winds from the nearby Southern Ocean, providing relief from the warm conditions. The soils are primarily granite based with less ironstone and gravel than other parts of the state. Rainfall persists into later spring, aiding vine growth and preparing them for the dry but importantly cool conditions throughout summer. Breaking rains don’t fall until late April in the region, giving reds time to fully ripen. Plantings at Pannoo vineyard are Pinot Noir, Shiraz, Riesling and Chardonnay.

Region:

Porongurup

Porongurup is an imposing granite range that lies north east of Albany, with vineyards that are 150 meters higher than Mount Barker. The Stirling Range, nearby to the north and east, provides outstanding air drainage. The region is cooler than its neighbouring sub regions, and ripens a week later than Mount Barker and two weeks later than Frankland River. It is well suited to cultivars that are sensitive to heat damage.
