All grapes are passionately tended at the Grand Cru Estate estate vineyard, to sustainable and biodynamic principles. Chemicals are used only sparsely, and solely as a supplement to ecologically friendly critical foliar sprays, aerated compost tea, and natural fertilisers. This provides valuable beneficial microbes which translate into a natural defense system within the plant, which then aids to envigor the vines. The Peter Seppelt principles of viticulture are the fundamentals for crafting exceptional Barossa wines. - Peter Seppelt
