Vineyard picture

A nice vineyard picture. Where is it? Why do you think that? What month is it? Any other observations?

I'm going to have to guess spring-time in Coonawara...from the short growth and the red soil.

The irrigation line also suggest NW, although doesn’t prove it. Interesting to have leaves with nominal shoot growth. Also no canopy wires for trellising. Red color suggests clay based soil. This is somewhere Mr Rolland hasn't touched....

terra rossa!

I would agree with terra rossa and Coonawarra (are those eucalyptus trees?) and early spring from the lack of shoot growth. Interesting how flat the vineyard is. Would imagine the vines are Cabernet?

Barossa (colour of soil?) and early Spring, so September - or is my antipodean clock way out?

PS Just polished off Howard Park Margaret River Chardonnay 1999 + Pol Roger 1990 with poached salmon and mushroom risotto e bisi and a handful of good friends. Yum!Both wines showing excellent, interesting bottle age, HP suggesting a few years to go.

Seriously doubt Coonawarra with all the trees and bush in the background. Most of the vineyards are set back from the bush and as for terra rossa, the cigar shaped strip of soil is in the heart of the region so very few trees near the major plantings.

With that amount of vegetation, I would suspect somewhere further north, McLaren Vale?

They look like gum trees to this Aussie's eyes.
Red soil is pretty common in Australia. My guess - Margaret River, Western Australia.

Preety boring so I guess it must be an aussie vineyard!!! Would go along with the Margaret River guess,and early spring.

Martin wins. Barossa (out at Kalleske in Greenock), right at the beginning of October.

Single wire is a clue, as are gum trees, soil, irrigation line.
