Silver Spoon Estate

Victoria | Heathcote

James' Review

When Peter and Tracie Young purchased an existing shiraz vineyard on the top of the Mt Camel range in 2008, they did not waste any time. They immediately planted a second vineyard, constructed a small winery, and in '13 acquired a neighbouring vineyard. The 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 as a geologist in the 1970s in the Hunter Valley, and he more recently completed the Master of Wine Technology and Viticulture degree at Melbourne Uni.
