Stuart Wines Company’s White Box vineyard is located at Cornella in the famed Heathcote wine region of Victoria. Heathcote has earned a reputation as one of the most exciting red wine producing regions in Australia, producing wines of outstanding colour, varietal definition, elegance and ageing potential. Shiraz is the variety that has established the reputation of the area and makes up the majority of existing plantings. The moderate climate, dry summers and deep, red Cambrian soils of the area have proved ideal conditions for the variety. The 67 hectare White Box vineyard is sited on the eastern slopes of the Mt Camel range. The property contains one of the largest remnant stands of the White Box, the earliest flowering of the eucalypts. A partnership between Stuart Wines Company and the Department of Sustainability and Environment is ensuring this ecosystem is preserved for a multitude of plant life, birds and animals that make this their home. The vineyard site is free of frosts and disease pressure is low due to the dry climate in the growing season. Shiraz is the predominant variety planted in the vineyard. Other varieties planted are Cabernet sauvignon, Merlot, Tempranillo, Nebbiolo, Viognier and Chardonnay Read less
