Langhorne Creek's climate is profoundly driven by the Southern Ocean and its average altitude of 20m, lower than that of any other region on the mainland. You might expect ample rainfall, but its growing season total of just 161mm (barely beaten by that of Kangaroo Island's 156mm) makes irrigation essential The net outcome is a climate that proffers generous yields with a lower-than-average need for sprays, reducing soil compaction by tractors and the overall cost per tonne of grapes. Thus most growers have organic accreditation, Angas & Bremer included. It has a registered compost area for vintage waste, and sprays winery waste water on a native eucalyptus woodlot. Exports to most major markets. -JAMES HALLIDAY
Angas & Bremer takes its name from the two rivers revered as the heart and soul of Langhorne Creek. A region whose story remains untold, despite being one of the country’s most well regarded.
