Vine balance, varietal flavour integrity and structure are key aims in the Robert Stein vineyard. Crop levels are meticulously monitored to ensure that optimal balance between yield and quality is maintained each year. For the most part our vines are 'dry grown' with manual irrigation applied sparingly when required to improve vine uniformity and consistency, imperative to growing quality fruit.
Robert Stein produces a wide range of wine varieties. Each of these varieties is given every opportunity to reach its full potential in the vineyard. Each location presents variations in aspect, slope and soil type.
The idiosyncratic nature of specific vineyard sites enables us to create more stylistic wines with varietal integrity. As each year brings unpredictability and difference, the vineyard team work around the clock with seasonal change and environmental conditions to ensure every vintage potential is optimised and that the fruit is a true expression of the season or vintage.
