Sustainable Viticulture

Curlew Estate operates on principles of sustainability. The vineyard is established on sandy gravelly soils which deliver unique nuances to the wine. The vineyard's soil structure and microbial activity are the driving forces behind the unique flavour of Curlew Estate Premium Shiraz. And maintaining the correct organic inputs to consistently improve soil texture, depth and density are of core importance to the vineyards evolution. Whether it's the first pruning incision of the year, or removal of the final pre-harvest leaf to provide the berries with more sunlight exposure, regimented viticultural practices are the reason why brilliant wines begin in the vineyard.
