Located just 30 minutes drive south east of Adelaide and parallel to the coast, these rolling hillside vineyards produce some of Australia`s finest Shiraz and Grenache based red wines. Some of the areas historic old wineries were established in the late 1800s and many remain today. With a strong regional identity on the international stage, the wines have a distinctive style and subtlely achieved from a combination of very warm summers, mild winters and cooling sea breezes. Many of Australia`s most famous and expensive wines have their vineyard origins within this region.
Simon Hackett established his own `boutique` winery in 1984, having served his apprenticeship under Peter Lehmann and making wine for some 11 years. Today he crushes grapes grown in the McLaren Vale and Barossa Valley regions, producing rich, bold and innovative wines.
This hand crafted Rhône style Aussie red from a talented winemaker is a McLaren Vale treasure. Simon Hackett uses grapes from gnarled 50 year old McLaren Vale Grenache vines to yield a rich, spicy wine with redcurrant and raspberry fruit enhanced by 3 month oak maturation. A sweet berry character is retained on the fruit dominant finish, rounded by light tannins and cherry stone acidity.
