Our Regions

We source our fruit from some of the best regions in South Australia.

Adelaide Hills

The classic combination of high altitude, approx. 400-500m above sea level, high winter rainfall and cool summers, produce fruit of supreme quality.

Shallow, shaly soils, washed by centuries of rainfall, ensure low yielding vines, with intensely flavoured fruit.

Long, cool ripening periods, with night-time temperatures as low as 3-4°C, allow fruit flavours to develop and concentrate to their optimum level.

Showing elegance and finesse, undoubtedly this region produces some of Australia’s finest white table wines.

Langhorne Creek

Established as a premium wine-grape producing region as far back as 1860 Langhorne Creek is one of Australia’s oldest wine regions.  Situated 70 km south east of Adelaide this stunning area is surprisingly cool due to its proximity to the Southern Ocean.  Made up of largely flat plains sheltered by the Mount Lofty ranges with low winter-dominant rainfall and moderate daytime temperatures.

The grape quality is enhanced by deep, rich alluvial soils, washed down by floods from the Adelaide Hills over the centuries.

It is renowned for its reds, in particular Shiraz and Cabernet, which show great character, style and elegance.

McLaren Vale

Approximately 35km south of Adelaide McLaren Vale was first established as a grape growing region in 1838.

Warm summers, moderate winters, dominant winter rain and low humidity characterize its mediterranean climate. Vines are planted on a variety of soils, in many cases sandy in nature and laid over clays so free draining - ideal for viticulture.

 

Most vineyards are found on gently undulating land, however around Blewitt Springs to the north, elevation rises to 200m, whilst the remainder of the region is only between 50-100m above sea level.

This outstanding region has a world-class reputation for Shiraz with its wines renowned for ripeness, elegance, structure, power and complexity.

Riverland

The Riverland region surrounds the River Murray from Blanchetown through to Renmark, some 150 km north-east of Adelaide.

It is often referred to as the ‘powerhouse’ of the South Australian Wine Industry, as it accounts for around half of South Australia’s total annual crush.

This region is relatively flat, only 20 km above sea level and the soil is sandy loam that is moderately fertile.

The superb warm climate, its commitment to viticultural quality through worlds best practise in irrigation, clone selection and vineyard management techniques, lead to the production of generous fruit driven wines.  In particular Chardonnay, Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.  Full flavoured, easy drinking wines ideal for immediate enjoyment.
