The vines in the HVD vineyard were planted in 1908 and form the “Sign Post Block”. The same soil, same rainfall and same temperatures of a single vineyard produce a consistency of flavour throughout the wine. Single Vineyard wines are only made in years when nature contrives to produce fruit of such outstanding quality that their winemakers will set parcels aside to be separately bottled.
