Vineyard Notes

This year has been a particularly big 2018 for Garbin Estate in regards to vineyard maintenance and strategy. It all started after pruning. If you have seen our Swan Valley vineyard it is looking particularly green this season this is due to planting cover crop which adds nutrients to enhance the nitrogen in our soil. This has in turn given our vines a better pH level in the soil for growth which in time will reward us with great quality fruit!

Our Sangiovese is looking its best it ever has and we are very proud of the hard work that's been done from the planting to now. Big things are expected from the fruit in the upcoming vintage 2019. 

We have also made plans for new plantings in our Gingin vineyard! more details to come.
