Region McLaren Vale

The McLaren Vale wine region is located between the Mount Lofty Ranges and the Gulf of St Vincent just South of Adelaide in South Australia. Historically it was John Reynell who established Chateau Reynella in 1838, and Thomas Hardy who purchased the historic Tintara in 1876, that kick started the development of the McLaren Vale wine industry. The climate is generally considered warm, although different aspects, altitude and the effect of the cooling ocean breezes moderate the climate within the different sub-regions of the Vale. A large number of soil types are present, although red-brown loams dominate. The biggest viticultural challenge is the potential for drought and the overall lack of water. Full bodied, robust and plush reds typify the McLaren Vale style. Plantings are dominated by Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Grenache, with smaller plantings of whites including Semillon, and Chardonnay. More recent plantings of Mediterranean varieties particularly suited to the climate, including Sangiovese, Tempranillo, Mourvedre, Savagnin and Fiano have also been very successful.


Brothers Kym and John Davey took over the Shingleback Estate in the 1990’s from their grandfather that had farmed it since 1957. Their philosophy is to produce affordable, high quality wines evidenced by their first release in 1998. Their main focus is the red varieties of Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon, with a selection of Chardonnay and Semillon. Shingleback is a small-scale winery, which practises sustainability in the vineyard and small batch production in the winery. Their portfolio includes Shingleback, Haycutters, Red Knot and The Gate. Each range is made in its distinct style, highlighting the richness and ripeness that the McLaren Vale region can achieve.
