Flaxman Valley Wine District

Flaxman Valley is a locality on the eastern slopes of the Barossa Ranges in South Australia. Flaxman Valley is in the Eden Valley wine region, partly in the High Eden subregion. It was named after Charles Flaxman, the chief clerk of George Fife Angas. Some of the local wineries are located at an altitude of between 480-500 m, about 250 m higher than the Barossa Valley floor. The cooler temperatures are the key to the unique wines in the area, allowing an extended ripening period, which extends well into autumn. The poor soils tend to limit the vigour of the vines and create challenges for the winemaker. Most of the soils are shallow, generally light sandy loams lying over light to medium clay.

The Eden Valley Wine Region includes four districts : Keyneton ; Eden Valley Town ; Springton ; Flaxman Valley
