The Flanders, Kirkwood and Mullany families established the Grove Estate vineyard in 1989. The property was purchased with the aim of producing premium cool climate wine grapes on its red volcanic red soils, situated 3km from Young on the Murringo Road at 530m above sea level. The Grove Estate vineyards already had a long history of involvement with the wine growing industry with vines originally planted on the property back in 1886. The Croatian settlers moved into the region after leaving Dalmatia and brought with them bundles of vine cuttings, some of which survive at Grove Estate today. Since 1989, over 50 hectares of vines have been planted on the property, including the varieties Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz, Merlot, Zinfandel, Barbera, Sangiovese, Petit Verdot, Chardonnay, Semillon and Nebbiolo. In 1997 the partners of 'Grove Estate' decided to keep a small parcel of fruit and produce a range of premium wines under their own label. The first wine released was a 1997 Cabernet Sauvignon - and today, a smart selection of reds and whites exist. They include an Italian style Zinfandel, a Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz, Chardonnay, Semillon and Nebbiolo. Some of these are also available in 375ml half size bottles. Since the 2003 vintage, Tim Kirk of Clonakilla has made our Shiraz and more recently our Shiraz Viognier. He also oversees all the other wines that are made with great care at Long Rail Gully by Richard Parker. Read less
