Guess where these wines are from? Yup, the iconic McLaren Vale and the adjacent Adelaide Hills. The McLaren Vale, kissed by a Mediterranean climate, boasts over forty identifiable microclimates. Head north, climb in altitude, and you hit the Adelaide Hills – one of South Australia's coolest wine-growing regions, perfect for crisp, fresh, mineral-driven whites.
The Adelaide Hills is Australia's most vibrant cool climate wine region.
It is acknowledged internationally for its distinctive premium wines, viticulture and stunning scenery.
The region is located in the Mount Lofty Ranges east of Adelaide, stretching in a narrow band approximately 70km long.
From one of the largest geographical wine regions in Australia, and amongst the most diverse in terms of climate, soil and topography.
McLaren Vale has produced wine since 1838 and the region's reputation is strongly established in South Australia's and Australia's winemaking origins.
Known for innovative viticultural and winemaking techniques and an international reputation for producing the 'trilogy' of Australian reds: Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon and Grenache.
Of our region's 7,308 hectares of area under vine, 54% of our plantings are dedicated to Shiraz, however our region also excels in producing exceptional Mediterranean alternative red and white varieties including Fiano, Vermentino, Barbera, Montepulciano, Nero d'Avola and Tempranillo
