There are fourteen ancient shorelines that mark the retreating ocean from what is now the Naracoorte Range on the Limestone Coast. These shorelines, now hills, harbour the famed 'Terra Rossa' topsoil over free draining Gambier limestone. These tough well drained soils provide tiny crops of intensely flavoured Merlot.

Winery Tasting Notes


Concentrated flavours of black and red berry fruits highlighted with subtle French oak. Classically medium bodied, fruit driven with fine tannins and great texture providing a seamless finish.


Wrattonbully adjoins the Coonawarra area in the southern part of the Limestone Coast wine zone. The prominent viticultural feature of the area is the series of ancient beach ridges and dunes which run roughly north-south through the area. These ridges are made up of soft crumbly limestone which weathers to produce the red and brown Terra Rossa clay loam soils so highly prized for grape growing. The ridges and dunes have elevations of up to 30m compared with the Coonawarra Terra Rossa 'high' of less than 5m. The extra elevation on the Wrattonbully dunes produce the advantage of cold air drainage which reduces the risk of frost during the growing season.
