VINEYARD

Elysian Springs is a 200-acre estate located in the pristine northern end of the Adelaide Hills district, bordering the Eden Valley. It is the birthplace of the River Torrens, the fresh water tributary key to the establishment of the capital of South Australia, the city of Adelaide.

The property started its journey when established by the Seppelt family back in 1980 when it was planted to Syrah, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Today, the journey continues where we endeavour to use sustainable viticulture along with biodynamic and organic techniques to produce wines with a true sense of place. Our passion for the land and all things vinous are what drive us to produce wines and food that best represent the beautiful part of this land we are custodians of.

Wine facts

Label Notes:

This wine is named in honour of the natural spring located on the property which is the origin of the River Torrens that flows through the heart of Adelaide. Whole bunches of our most distinctive Pinot Noir were hand-selected and picked in the cool of the early morning then destemmed without crushing. 30% of this was whole cluster fermented, whilst the remaining fruit was crushed and went through traditional open fermentation and 30-day extended skin contact. It was then racked into 50% new and seasoned French oak. Theresultant wine was bottled directly thereafter with minimal filtration to capture the purity of taste and texture in our wine. We hope you enjoy these silent waters that run pure through this wine!
