We make Warramunda Estate wines to reflect their terroir – the distinctive place in which they are grown, Coldstream. The work we do in the vineyard is imperative to reflect and respect the earth in which the grapes are grown.Covering some sixty-five acres, the vineyard consists of Chardonnay, Viognier, Marsanne, Pinot Noir, Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon plantings. In 2015, we converted 23 rows of Cabernet Sauvignon to include Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Malbec and Petit Verdot, which are blended along with the Cabernet Sauvignon to make our Warramunda Cabernets a Bordeaux style blend.
Warramunda Estate practises sustainable viticulture which combines the practice of organic and biodynamic philosophies. We focus from the earth to the vine primarily managing the microflora that exist in the soil. Our soil consists of layers of sandy loam, sedimentary rock, sandstone cap followed by more sedimentary rock then finally clay. The microflora mainly exist within the sandy loam which is at the surface. We focus on planting organic materials such as rye & clover (cover crops) which is worked through the sandy loam (compost), promoting high levels of worm activity and creating a high-quality balance of microflora.
