    Barossa Old Vine - equal or greater than 35 years, the wines have grown to full maturity and they have a great track record of producing high quality vintages.

    Barossa Survivor Wine - equal to or greater than 70 years of age, represents a certain milestone that the vines have reached using traditional methods.

    Barossa Centenarian – equal to or greater than 100 years of age, pre-phylloxera that have been protected and allowed to mature into thick trunks with naturally sculpted forms.  They represent a time when dry-farming techniques and site location had to be researched and applied meticulously.

    Barossa Ancestor Vine – equal to or greater than 125 years, goes back to the early European settlers of Barossa. Dry grown, low yield vines that produce fruit that has great structure and instensity.
