Petersons Wines Armidale is located in the South East of Armidale in New England.
The vineyard is located on a rich, red brown basalt hill facing to the north east, and is planted with Semillon, Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling, Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Pinot Noir.
Our first harvest was in 2002.
As Armidale is a cool climate area, we expect very high fruit quality for many years.
After a lot of research into climatic conditions, we do anticipate some problems with vineyard management, but have established a specially designed trellis to avoid frost damage.
This should enable us to maximise fruit ripening through increased sunlight exposure within the canopy.
In addition, overhead sprinklers offer a back-up in case of severe frosts.
