In keeping with Star Lane Winery’s exacting standards and no compromise approach all fruit is estate grown in soil that is just as carefully chosen for its important contribution as every other aspect of the Star Lane wine making process.
From the earth to the bottle no detail is overlooked.
The Merlot and Shiraz are planted on red loam over mudstone with the winery proudly standing sentinel in the background. The Sangiovese and Nebbiolo are planted in ideal granite soils at Star Lane Winery partners Rex Lucas’ property only a couple of kilometers away.
At 450 metres above sea level the mountain breezes ensure that cool evenings combine with long sun filled days to make for an idyllic growing environment. The cool evenings provide a long slow ripening period allowing the grapes to develop wonderful flavours and the sunny days allow for the fruit to gently mature, ripen, and develop over the full length of the growing season.
