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.


Owned by Dr Richard Hamilton, one of the original Australian winemaking families of South Australia. In 1837 Richard Hamilton founded the Hamilton Vineyards, near Adelaide, planted with cuttings from South Africa. Five generations later, Richard Hamilton purchased a 43-hectare vineyard in Coonawarra, under the Leconfield brand. They also own vineyards in McLaren Vale under the Richard Hamilton brand, with all fruit processed in the Coonawarra winery. Leconfield wines focus is on single varietal styles, with the emphasis on fruit not oak. They have a great reputation for Cabernet Sauvignon on the famous terra Rossa soils of Coonawarra, red brown loam over limestone, ideal for Cabernet Sauvignon. The maritime cool climate of Coonawarra has also been likened to Bordeaux, home of long-lived Cabernet blends. Wines produced include, Riesling, Chardonnay, Shiraz, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon.
