Hobb’s Vineyard, with plantings dating back to 1905, is situated in the Barossa Ranges. This is a little cooler than much of the Barossa Valley, allowing for longer ripening, better flavour development, and acid retention. The vineyards coarse, yellow, podzolic soil sits atop clay subsoil, mixed with decomposing rock and this strata stores water well, meaning our vines can be effectively dry grown.

Barossa Valley, SA

Just 60km northeast of Adelaide, the Barossa Valley is one of Australia's oldest wine regions. Warm and dry, it is renowned for producing the distinctive Barossa Shiraz, a full-bodied red with notes of chocolate and spice. The valleys and sloping hills create several temperature ranges. But in summer, take it from us: it's just plain hot.

The soils range from clay and loam in the cooler areas to the classically South Australian sand and red-brown loam in the valleys. Irrigation is often required, but with water supply an increasing problem, many growers are practicing dryland farming, relying on what falls from the sky and clings from night fog. Couple this with the number of very old vines in the region (which produce limited quantities of grapes), and the result is fruit with deeply concentrated flavour which quickly ripen. A great foundation for some of the world's most acclaimed reds.
