The Place

Pouring wine over The Cutting soil

A labour of love and respect for the land

Our name, The Cutting stems from the visible cut on Stonewell road, left exposed after the road was built. The cut provides an insight into the layers of soil that the vine roots need to penetrate in search of water in our often dry climate. The harder the toil, the greater the intensity of flavours and concentration in the grapes.

A remarkably ‘easy’ site to grow premium quality fruit as long as meticulous attention to vine detail remains the focus.

Sustainability is always front of mind when tending our vineyards. Our hands-on approach at each stage of the winemaking process allows us to maintain the sustainability of the land. By planting native vegetation around our vineyard we contribute towards natural regeneration to regrow what was there before.

Our vineyard lies on top of a hill on Stonewell Road, in one of the premier sub-regions of the Barossa Valley.

The site displays an impressive array of seven different soil types and creates terroir nuances within a single vineyard. Limestone forms the base of the vineyard and creates wines with mineral freshness and purity. The presence of rich red ironstone results in more perfumed aromas. The clay-based soils aid water retention resulting in a great canopy structure that aids acid retention in the grape.

The vineyard site resonates in every sip of our award-winning Barossa Valley Shiraz.
