The Lane Vineyard Block Series show true varietal character and the influence of the terroir of The Lane Vineyard. Block numbers indicate the patch within the vineyard where the fruit is grown, as do the “Google Earth” coordinates on each label. Minimum intervention winemaking allows the vineyard to do the talking. The Block Series are stylish, fresh, fruit driven wines with a true sense of place.
Cool temperatures and below average rainfall throughout spring resulted in even flowering and a healthy fruit set, with some varieties requiring crop thinning. A warm to mild summer with few heat spikes provided ideal ripening conditions and minimal disease pressure. A warm period in April helped late varieties ripen fully, and ensured an outstanding vintage.
An unseasonably dry winter was balanced out with above average rainfall in June and August ensuring optimal soil moisture at budburst. Cool temperatures early in the season resulted in evening ripening and good flower development. A cold spell at fruit set resulted in very low yields across all varieties. A heat spike in January ensured optimal ripeness of fruit combining with low yields to produce fruit of far above average flavour intensity.
The Lane Vineyard has been rated by the South Australian Tourism Commission as one of the Tourism Champions in South Australia. (Video: Youtube)
