SPRING VALE

Freycinet Coast, TAS

Established in 1842, Spring Vale has been home to the Lyne family since the 1870’s. For many years a sheep & cattle property, the estate diversified into viticulture in 1986 and has since established a reputation for wines of outstanding style and structure. Continuing in the tradition of hard work and innovation established by William Lyne in 1826, Rodney and Lyn Lyne have planted 14.5 hectares of wine grapes at Spring Vale, principally Pinot Noir. The vineyard began in 1986 when a small area of 0.8 hectares were planted to Pinot Noir. Further plantings were made in the following years: firstly, more Pinot Noir, then Chardonnay and Gewürztraminer, followed by Pinot Gris in 1996. In 2000, more Pinot Noir and a splash of Pinot Meunier were planted. A further 7.9 hectares of Pinot Noir were then planted in 2013. In June 2007, Spring Vale purchased a neighbouring farm, “Melrose”. The purpose was to enable increased production of a lighter style red to be produced, with the first “Melrose” Pinot Noir being the 2008 Vintage.

The Freycinet Coast is the driest part of the state, with an average annual rainfall of 550mm. Warm days and cool nights are a result of this climate and ideal for slow ripening and excellent flavour development. The soil at Spring Vale is mostly fertile clay loam, with the subsoil varying from porous friable loam with rock to medium-heavy clay. Drainage is excellent throughout the vineyard and the pH of the soil is around 6.5.

A Family Passion.
