McLaren Vale

  McLaren Vale
Dating back to 1838, McLaren Vale is situated in South Australia just 45 minutes drive from the states capital, Adelaide. McLaren Vale has become one of Australia’s most highly regarded wine regions, famous for producing some of the best wines in the world.Due to its climate McLaren Vale is considered one of the most consistent premium grape growing regions in Australia. Summer temperatures are milder than further north and inland partly due to cooling breezes from the Gulf St Vincent, allowing for a smooth ripening season.

The soil in McLaren Vale is free draining, which allows for the moisture content of the vines to be carefully controlled with state of the art irrigation systems. With the majority of the year’s rain falling in winter, irrigation can be kept low, to achieve superior quality fruit.

McLaren Vale wines are characterised by their ripeness, elegance and complexity.
