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.

Winery HARDY'S

Hardy’s is a large wine producer with extensive vineyard resources and a long and distinguished history of winemaking in South Australia. Founded in 1853 by winemaking pioneer Thomas Hardy, the company has grown considerably in size and stature over the years gaining a solid reputation primarily for commercial wines. A complicated series of corporate take-overs and acquisitions has seen Hardy’s become part of the huge Accolade Wines group. The wine brand celebrated its 160th Anniversary in 2013, and fifth generation Hardy family member Bill Hardy remains an integral part of the business. Hardy’s flagship Eileen Hardy Shiraz reflects Hardy’s enduring and strong house winemaking ethos and exceptional vineyard resources.
