Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Located in the Hunter Valley, the Heslop family’s Stonehurst Cedar Creek vineyard and cellar door is nestled amongst the foothills of the Wollombi Valley. Rich alluvial soil, gentle airflow and plenty of sunlight hours provides the perfect foundation for a healthy vineyard – continually producing award winning wines.The vines are grown on organic principles, with all vines hand pruned in winter, and all fruit hand-picked in summer. No insecticides or pesticides, and only organically approved herbicides, are used in the vineyard. Minimal intervention winemaking continues the labour of love in producing wines that express the terroir, passion and sustainable commitment of the vineyard. The rich biodiversity in the vineyard plays a critical role in maintaining the natural balance with no need for pest management.While this historic property has been in this family’s ownership for the past five generations, the first land grants were to two Napoleonic War veterans – each of 100 acres – in the 1820’s. In the past this property was renowned for its orchards. Today the same rich soils and temperate climate support the vineyards, and grazing for cattle and deer. Before the grapevines were planted in 1995, considerable research into variety, clones and trellising was undertaken by vigneron Daryl Heslop. Clones of Semillon, Chardonnay and Shiraz were selected for their superior suitability in producing the best and typical Hunter flavours. Selection of Chambourcin as the main red variety was based on its ability to produce full flavoured, yet soft wines, and its high disease resistance. Installation of high pergola trellis was an expensive exercise, but the good exposure to sunlight and air flow enhances flavour and enables the use of full organic practices in canopy and fruit management. Now passed onto the next generation, daughter Laura and husband Anthony continue the passion of producing award winning, estate grown and limited release wines.
