McLaren Vale

"McLaren Vale is one of the great and oldest names of Australian wine. The birthplace of wine in South Australia, it lies just south of the capital city of Adelaide and offers a multiplicity of soils which bask under a Mediterranean climate... nestled between the Mount Lofty Ranges and the white, sandy beaches of the Gulf of St Vincent. It offers exceptional wines and regional produce all set amongst rolling vineyards, a rugged coastline and a charming collective of villages.

With so much to offer winemakers and with its natural propensity toward change and experimentation, it’s not surprising that that McLaren remains a draw for some of the most creative winemakers around. These winemakers add to the vibrancy of a region that for decades has been lauded for its ability to produce brilliance from an array of noble varietals like Shiraz, Grenache and Cabernet Sauvignon to newer arrivals like Nero d’Avola, Fiano and Vermentino.

McLaren Vale is a region of beauty with a focus on quality and innovation that ensures its reputation will continue to grow and grow. McLaren Vale is also one of the more environmentally conscious regions in Australia with a large percentage of producers farming organically, biodynamically or employing sustainable farming methods." - Wine Australia
