The family of pioneering Heathcote wine grower, Gordon Leckie senior, continue to produce outstanding wine from their boutique vineyard on She-Oak Hill in the acclaimed Heathcote Wine Region.
She-Oak Hill Vineyard is located on the western side of the Northern Highway, five kilometers north of the township of Heathcote in the heart of the Heathcote Region. The vineyard was planted in the spring of 1975. Along with Mt Ida, Huntleigh and Jasper Hill, She Oak Hill was one of the pioneering vineyards in the region. Gordon’s family added to the original vineyard with a further planting of Shiraz and Chardonnay in 1996. These vines have gone on to establish deep roots in the mineral rich Cambrian soil, and with extensive use of straw mulching, the dry grown vines produce a relatively low yield of premium fruit.
