Nestled between the Mount Lofty Ranges and white sandy beaches is one of South Australia's oldest and most picturesque regions, widely recognised for its commitment water use efficiency and environmental sustainability. Shiraz is McLaren Vale’s most important variety with a diversity of styles produced. Cabernet Sauvignon, Grenache, Semillon, Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay also show region’s distinction for wines of ripeness, elegance, structure, power and complexity, whilst the region’s Mediterranean climate has welcomed varieties like Viognier, Sangiovese, Tempranillo, Mourvèdre, Savagnin, Marsanne, Roussanne, Barbera and Fiano. John Reynell and Thomas Hardy first planted grapevines in the region in 1838 and the fruits of vines that are more than 100-years-old still flourish today.

    There’s nothing more special than opening a bottle of wine that you’ve cellared for years at just the right moment. But which wines do you cellar? And for how long? It’s as much art as science. And in the end, it’s the challenge that makes it so rewarding.

    There's that famous old French saying in Burgundy, about the good warm vintages, that you would have to be dead not to make good wine. And in the easy years, that's what happens - everyone makes good wine and everyone's picking around the same time. But it's the difficult years – and in the Valley here, we still get three or four difficult years in every ten – they're the years where you make the statement on your skills and your expertise.
