Celebrate the 2023 Terroir Awards with Stone Trail Chenin Blanc

17 August 2023

We are thrilled to announce the prestigious accolade awarded to our winemaker, Ryan Puttick, at the 2023 Terroir Awards. 

The 2019 Old Road Wine Co. Stone Trail Chenin Blanc received the esteemed award of National Winner for the Heritage Vineyards.

This award is an embodiment of Ryan’s winemaking philosophy; to respect the fruit that the vineyard has given you, with minimal intervention. By respecting each vineyard as a unique terroir, Ryan and his winemaking team work diligently to ensure that the wine and brand philosophy are synchronized, reflecting the terroir from where the grapes are sourced, particularly in the case of our prized Single Vineyard selection.

The unirrigated vineyard that supplies the grapes for this wine was planted in 1984 and is at an altitude of 380m above sea level. The vineyard started as a trellised vineyard, but over the years it became an improvised bushvine. Its grapes give excellent acidity in this wine and a perfect balance. At this high altitude, the vineyard is exposed to cool afternoon breezes every day.
