                    [Notes1] => Owned by the Harvey family since 1964, this 89 hectare property, lying 40 kilometres south of Adelaide, is spread across six different sites within McLaren Vale. The soils vary across the plots with alluvial loam, red-brown loam, clay and sandstone all sitting over a limestone base, enabling the family to plant specific varieties adapted to those specific sites. The vineyards are farmed organically and some of the vines date back over 100 years. Winemaker Renae Hirsch favours a minimal intervention approach in the cellar, attempting to showcase varietal, regional and vineyard characteristics whilst promoting 
elegance, balance and finesse. She adopts a pragmatic approach to each wine with some being de-stemmed and others retaining some whole clusters whist ageing ranges from tank for certain wines and older barrel maturation for others. James Halliday rates this winery 5*.  
                    [Notes2] =>  Chalk Hill vineyard was first planted in 1969 with Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon and more recently plantings of Sangiovese and Barbera have been added. Each variety was matched with the block`s particular soil type. Thus, southerly sloping hill of deep red-brown loam on a thick `chalk` base. Below is `Creek Block`, where old Shiraz vines grow in deep alluvial loam next to the great River Red Gums on the banks of Peddler`s Creek. This block produces spicy fruit with thick, leathery skins that are great for flavour and colour extraction. Cabernet Sauvignon, Sangiovese and Barbera are planted at the top of the hill in the shallow ironstone sand. In these soils the grapevines have to work hard and produce small berries with a very intense colour and flavour profile - a desirable result of the tough but sought-after growing conditions.

About this product +

Producer >

Owned by the Harvey family since 1964, this 89 hectare property, lying 40 kilometres south of Adelaide, is spread across six different sites within McLaren Vale. The soils vary across the plots with alluvial loam, red-brown loam, clay and sandstone all sitting over a limestone base, enabling the family to plant specific varieties adapted to those specific sites. The vineyards are farmed organically and some of the vines date back over 100 years. Winemaker Renae Hirsch favours a minimal intervention approach in the cellar, attempting to showcase varietal, regional and vineyard characteristics whilst promoting elegance, balance and finesse. She adopts a pragmatic approach to each wine with some being de-stemmed and others retaining some whole clusters whist ageing ranges from tank for certain wines and older barrel maturation for others. James Halliday rates this winery 5*
