Silver Spoon Estate

Victoria | Heathcote

Our Review

When Peter and Tracie Young purchased an existing shiraz vineyard (planted around '99) on the top of the Mt Camel Range in '08, they did not waste any time. They immediately planted a second vineyard, constructed a small winery and in ’13 acquired a neighbouring vineyard. The estate name comes from the Silver Spoon fault line that delineates the Cambrian volcanic rock from the old silver mines on the property. Peter became familiar with vineyards when working in the '70s as a geologist in the Hunter Valley and subsequently completed the master of wine technology and viticulture degree at the University of Melbourne. A new cellar door opened in '21. -JAMES HALLIDAY
