Hidden Creek is situated in the beautiful rugged high altitude hills of Queensland’s Granite Belt at over 900 metres above sea level which is unique in Queensland.
The Granite Belt has warm summers and bitterly cold winters. This climate, together with the arid granite rocky soils, draws similar comparisons to high regions close to the Mediterranean. Areas such as north-eastern Spain, the inland south-west of France around Cahors and Gaillac, and the upper Rhone Valley in France, bear a great resemblance to our Granite Belt terrain. These regions have a tradition of unique characterful wines that are wonderful accompaniments to food.
At Hidden Creek we have adopted the grape varieties and inspiration of these regions. The outcome of our vineyard site, climate and culture produces wines that taste unique to our region. The people of France call this “Terroir” but there may just be an Indigenous term for this concept to explain why a wine has a certain taste not just because of the variety and vineyard management but because of its place. When we find that term we will let you know!
Our “Top” block is planted out to mostly Shiraz with a small section of Cabernet Sauvignon. The winery block is planted to Shiraz and the Eukey Road block is planted to Tempranillo and Viognier.
