Paralian is a family-based South Australia outfit, founded by Charlie Seppelt and Skye Salter.
After a combined 46 vintages both in Australia and broad, the two decided to dial their lives and professional careers into the place they both fell in love with, McLaren Vale. It's the spot that has the three things they care about: special sites, surf and sand.
They have great long-standing relationships with some of the region's top growers from their previous roles working at blue chip wineries. Those friendships are now giving them access to some phenomenal fruit. It's the perfect foundation for them build their small artisan brand.
Just a couple of vintages in and the critical reviews have been huge. Paralian is one of the budding wine projects to watch in McLaren Vale.
