We produce premium quality wines, grown on the north and east facing vineyards at Mount Camel, in the heart of the Heathcote region. There are five acres of vines on two vineyards planted mainly to Shiraz, with a small quantity of viognier.
Our aim is to support natural processes in viticulture and winemaking that produce wines of unique flavour and high quality.
The Silver Spoon, from which our brand name name derives, is a geological fault line that traverses our property. The fault line delineates the boundary between Cambrian volcanic rocks 500 million years old, which were uplifted to the earth’s surface to form the Mount Camel ridge, abutting younger Ordovician sediments.
Subsequent erosion of the Cambrian volcanic rocks formed the famous red soils of the Heathcote region, which have a reputation for producing wines of quality and elegance.
Come and see us at the 2012 Heathcote Food and wine Festival on 6th and 7th October. We will have both the 2009 Shiraz and 2010 Shiraz available for tasting and sale. For further info see www.heathcotewinegrowers.com.au.
The Silver Spoon Estate logo has been recognised as one of only 200 finalists in the 2010 Wolda worldwide design annual www.wolda.org. Congratulations and thanks to Amy Lewis Design for the work done on our logo and branding.
