Located on the Murray River at Loxton, the Barich family property features a beautiful organic vineyard that produces wonderful Viognier. Since the 2011 vintage these grapes have been complemented by the Basham family’s vineyard in Barmera. Meticulous hand detailed work in both vineyards ensures the grapes are in perfect condition when they are picked.
This wine is made with organic winemaking techniques with very little intervention from the winemaker.

A cool spring and cooler than average start to summer was followed by a return to warmer conditions at the end of January. This warm weather continued into February and accelerated the ripening of the Viognier fruit.
