Mt Benson Vineyard joins the fold

We recently acquired ‘Wrights Bay Vineyard’ near Mount Benson in the Limestone Coast; this vineyard, only a stone’s throw from the ocean, has been a significant supplier of high quality grapes to us for 15 years so we know the vineyards and resulting wines very well.

The Sauvignon Blanc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Shiraz have made up large portions of our Kingston Estate range blends, with parcels of the Shiraz often included in our reserve wines, including Echelon.

We are seeing a significant increase in demand for super premium wines in our export markets and this vineyard will enable us to build on this, creating wines with additional diversity and flair. Adding this wonderful vineyard to our portfolio of properties within the Limestone Coast ensures a consistent supply of this highly prized fruit, something the winemakers are very excited about.
