Scotts Creek, Retreat Shiraz Grenache
Retreat Shiraz Grenache
Imagine a place with abundant sunshine where rain falls just when the vineyards need it; whose ancient soils are ideal for our vines. Here the air is clean, water is precious and stars come out at night in their full glory. An environment in harmony with the natural land. A sanctuary where beautiful rare birds, native animals and plants thrive beside our estate vineyards.
A retreat is also in our everyday lives. A place to revive and replenish ones energy and relax or reconnect with others.
Scotts Creek Retreat is a gentle nod to embracing the new discovery, to relishing the quiet moments or remembering a joyful encounter.
The first vines were planted by Penfolds over 25 years ago. This area was selected for its stony soils over a limestone base, to produce grape varieties of immense character and resilience.
The longer periods of sunshine and warm dry climate deliver consistent high quality fruit.
