Region Langhorne Creek

Vines were first planted in Langhorne Creek, south of Adelaide, by Frank Potts soon after the establishment of Bleasdale in 1850. The region is a large, broad, sparsely-populated plain watered by the Bremer and Angas rivers. It was named after Alfred Langhorne, a drover who crossed the Bremer River at a place that became known as Langhorne's Crossing. The name evolved to become Langhorne Creek. A cool, maritime region with deep, fertile, alluvial soils, Langhorne Creek is best known for medium to full bodied red wines made, in particular, from shiraz, cabernet sauvignon and malbec. Reliable quality and volume has made it a favoured source for major producers and much of the region’s large crop goes to make wines that are not specifically identified with the region.

Winery COATES

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.
