Second Rutherglen vineyard under Scion management

In 2015 we made our first Syrah (Shiraz), released under our explorative Ron Diamond label, a savoury, restrained wine that takes inspiration from the structured and delicate wines of the Rhone in France. Fruit is sourced 9km north east of Scion, from a tiny four-acre vineyard called Terravinia. First planted over 100 years ago, friends replanted a portion of the original site in 1996.

We’re excited to announce that we will manage this vineyard ongoing in exchange for fruit produced. It’s a great opportunity for us to breathe some love and commitment back into this wonderful little site. It has a proven history of producing exceptional Shiraz: Terravinia fruit is finely structured, exhibits complex savoury characters and a lovely persistence of flavour. There is some hard work ahead, but lucky are we! The 2016 vintage is settling beautifully into French oak in the winery stay tuned for the release next year under our Scion label!
