Region Adelaide Hills

ADELAIDE HILLS

Located to the east of Adelaide,the Adelaide Hills is part of the Mount Lofty Ranges. Considered a cool-climate region, most vineyards are situated at elevations between 450 to 550 metres. Rainfall is relatively high and spring frosts often pose problems. Hot northerly winds also make bush fires a real threat in the region. Adelaide Hills is a jigsaw of meso-climates, with the best vineyards centred around Piccadilly Valley and Lenswood in protected sites facing north or north-east. Soils are derived from schistic and sedimentary rock; typically well-drained sandy loams over red clay interspersed with schistic gravels. A premium wine-growing region, Adelaide Hills is best known for crisp, lively Sauvignon Blanc and elegant cool climates styles of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Shiraz.

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.
