‘Biodynamics is the most advanced form of organic farming... Healthy vines make better wines.’
- David Paxton

Typically, MV Shiraz displays vibrant aromas of blackberries and plum with chocolate and hints of oak, followed on the full-bodied palate by dark, fleshy fruit flavours, integrated oak and supple tannins.

MV Shiraz is a powerful (and affordable) demonstration of why winemakers all over the world are taking up organic and biodynamic farming practices - the resultant wines taste better.

As well as its reputation as one of Australia’s best-value reds, MV Shiraz is also a good each-way bet - drink young or cellar for up to 10 years.

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.
