Understanding the drivers of terroir in the Barossa Valley
The importance of terroir to wine production is twofold: First, it defines the style and quality of the wine. Second, it is a fundamental tool to position our wines in international markets. While management techniques can have a significant influence on vineyard performance, there is distinct variation in Shiraz wine style within and between Australian wine regions.
This investment aims to understand how environmental signals translate into physiological changes in grapevines that result in changes in berry composition and in turn result in expression of terroir characteristics in wine
