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.


“Wirra Wirra” is an aboriginal name meaning “amongst the gum trees”. In 1969 Greg and Roger Trott purchased the old ruins of the Wirra Wirra winery and lovingly rebuilt it to its former glory. The McLaren Vale vineyards are located on gravely loam over ironstone and deep alluvial river flats. Wirra Wirra produces a large number of wines across several ranges including flagship wines RSW Shiraz and Angelus. Fruit for the white wines made under the RGT collection is sourced from cool climate vineyards in the Adelaide Hills.
