Since 1851, the Brysons have been involved in agriculture for five generations, and are committed to producing exceptional hancrafted wine from fruit grown on their low yielding Morambro Creek vineyard

The pursuit of great wine begins in the meticulous management of the vineyard. Planted on own rootstock in the Padthaway Valley, sited to rich Terra Rosa soils, the vines of this exclusive estate vineyard benefit from excellent sun exposure, yielding grapes of heightened flavour profiles and fine tannins. Morambro Creek Shiraz is an assemblage of select barrels of wines which best demonstrate the intensity of estate grown fruit and integrated oak.

Morambro Creek

The plains of Padthaway produce wines of consistent quality and style. Although famously known as ‚ÄėChardonnay country‚Äô, the region produces excellent examples of Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon from old vine material. The Morambro Creek Vineyard consistently produces excellent fruit quality from low yielding vines, destined to be handcrafted into some of the Padthaway regions best wines. - Morambro Creek

The gently undulating country of Padthaway is neighbour to the famous Coonawarra. It has climatic similarities and a good slice of terra rossa, the famed soil of the Limestone Coast. The success of Coonawarra led viticulturalists to seek out similar ground. Back in 1944 the CSIRO had recommended the region for horticulture due to its rich soil and underground water supply. The climate is coined ‚ÄúMaritime‚ÄĚ with coastal influences. The vineyards here produce fruit for red and white table wine and sparkling wine.

Two plots of 210 acres each on rich Mediterranean climated Terra Rosa soil make up the Morambro estate. The warm summer days are moderated each evening by coastal winds that cool the vines and result in a longer ripening period. This extended period allows for the grape tannins and seed to fully ripen prior to being harvested, thus creating wines that are rich and supple on the palate. Low crop yields and small grape bunches of intense flavour are the priority, and whilst the latest technology is employed to capture vine balance and reduced vigour, fruit is only harvested when full flavour development is achieved.
