Vineyards

Sorby Adams Wines is based on the philosophy that great wines are made in the vineyard. Winemaker Simon Adams sources fruit from his own Eden Valley vineyards high in the Barossa Hills and also from a selection of wonderful growers around the Barossa.

Eden Valley

The Region

The cool climate of Barossa’s Eden Valley, its high altitude, ancient soils, cold wet winters and a temperate summer and autumn, combine to produce low yielding but intensely flavoured wines with outstanding natural acidity. World renowned for Riesling, it also produces superior quality Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon.

The Vineyards

Lehmann Vineyard

Nestled in the Barossa Hills in Eastern Eden Valley, Sorby Adams’ Home Vineyard is one of the oldest in the region, originally planted in 1932 by the Lehmann family, a name synonymous with quality Barossa wine. Located in Simon Adams’ own backyard, the Home Vineyard is a tribute to the wine region’s heritage. Its gnarly twisted vines are nurtured by Simon to showcase Eden Valley Shiraz.

Williamstown Vineyard

Located on the outskirts of Williamstown this cool climate site has mature Pinot Gris as well as some 70 year old Grenache.

Jellicoe Vineyard

Situated in Eden Valley’s “Golden Triangle” at Mt McKenzie, famous for old vine Riesling, the Sorby Adams Jellicoe Vineyard includes nearly 25 acres of mature vines entering their fourth decade. The vineyard epitomises the traditional strengths of the Barossa’s Eden Valley wine region and includes Riesling, Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon.
