Vineyard: The Jellicoe vineyard is situated high in the Eden Valley region of the Barossa perched at 475 metres above sea level. Low-yielding, 30 year old Riesling vines are planted on lean, rocky yellow podzolic soils typical to the terrior of the region. The cool climate perfectly accentuates the classic Riesling aromas and flavours that have made the Eden Valley world famous.

Established in the 1970's and mastering cool climate varieties such as Chardonnay, Riesling and Gewurztraminer before an array of red wine varieties took hold.
