Magic Three Rivers Single Vineyard in Eden Valley/Barossa The   architecture   of   the   modern   two-story   estate   house,   which   is   surrounded   by   a   light   fence   at   the   driveway,   is   nondescript,   efficient and   ecologically   elaborate.   Chris   Ringland   lives   on   the   ground   floor,   his   companions,   the   wines   including   barrels   and   technology   live   in the   basement.   A   1.6   hectare   broad   strip   of   olive   trees   separates   the   building   from   the   vineyard;   against   any   economic   rational   Ringland decided   in   1999   not   for   a   lucrative   expansion   of   his   vineyard   but   to   plant   olives.   The   two   reason   for   this   decision   is   prototypical   for Ringland:   The   south-eastern   alignment   of   the   plot   did   not   seem   optimal   to   him   and   at   the   same   time   he   always   wanted   to   create   a perfect olive oil for him and his friends. From   a   distance   the   vineyard   itself   leaves   the   impression   of   an   expansive   front   yard.   A   hundred   years   ago   this   spot   was   occupied   by gold   diggers,   however,   with   limited   success.   The   area   of   the   hillside   is   a   mere   1.8   hectares;   approximately   70%   are   covered   with   vines that   are   more   than   a   century   old.   Over   the   last   ten   years   Chris   has   planted   about   half   a   hectare   with   new   vines.   The   soil   is   marked   by podzol,   clay,   sand   and   red   potter’s   earth,   with   great   storage   capacity   and   minerality.   The   entire   area   is   covered   exclusively   with   Shiraz. The   yield   is   small: The   300-liter-Hogshead-barrels   can   be   counted   on   one   hand   –   usually   it   will   be   four   per   vintage.   In   addition,   there   are up   to   three   barriques.   Due   to   its   geographical   alignment,   the   terroir   catches   a   lot   of,   though   not   too   much,   sun   and   mild   winds   usually cool   down   the   vines   during   the   later   hours   of   the   day,   which   are   under   a   little   stress   from   the   southern   Australian   heat.   Despite   the intense work in the vineyards there is a relaxed atmosphere on the hill.
