Shirvington

5 Star Winery - Halliday Wine Companion

"The Shirvington family began the development of their McLaren Vale vineyards in 1996 under the direction of viticulturist Peter Bolte, and now have almost 24ha under vine, the majority to shiraz and cabernet sauvignon, with small additional plantings of mataro and grenache. A substantial part of the production is sold as grapes, the best reserved for the Shirvington wines." - Halliday

"Turning grapes into wine is a science. Making the wine special is an art. We have a consummate artist in winemaker, Kim Jackson. Kim's knowledge and influences extend from vintages in the Sonoma Valley in California to Nuit-St-Georges in Burgundy. Since 2005, she has been using grapes from our Redwind vineyard as her palette.

Our viticulturalist, Peter Bolte, has been involved in the wine industry since 1977, and his family have been farming in the McLaren Vale district since 1840. His care and expertisde have provided us with consistent , high-quality fruit since our first crop in 1999." - Shirvington
