26 MILLION YEARS AGO,
South Australia’s incredible Limestone
Coast was submerged by a vast ocean and
home to a thriving marine ecosystem.
A SERIES OF DRAMATIC ICE AGES
caused the ocean to recede, leaving the
area rich with deep limestone deposits
containing majestic marine fossils.
ANCIENT MINERALISED RELICS,
including an extraordinary whale fossil and an extensive museum of marine life, now lay buried beneath the alluvial soils of this World Heritage site.
THIS INCREDIBLE WHALE FOSSIL
contributes to the rich, fertile soil in our
vineyard, providing a natural and unique
filtration system, perfect for growing the grapes
that produce our award-winning wines.
