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.


Owner winemaker Duane Coates is based in McLaren Vale and sources premium fruit from such quality regions as Langhorne Creek, Adelaide Hills and the Clare Valley to produce a wide range of styles. He selects parcels of fruit from the traditional varieties of the region through to newer alternative varieties such as Touriga Nacional and Sangiovese. He also makes a range fortified styles and a classic sparkling Shiraz. His wines are handcrafted in an Old World savoury style; due to time he spent making wine in Burgundy and the Rhone Valley, France. He also spent time learning the craft of fortified wine production in the Douro Valley, Portugal.
