About the Wine

The changing face of McLaren Vale wine over the last decade or two has been amazing to watch. 

Yes, there's still plenty of hefty, rich Shiraz, Cabernet and Grenache to warm the cockles if that's your thing. But there's a lighter side to McLaren Vale too.

With more experimentation and more of a lean towards freshness and vitality in their red wines, the new wave of McLaren Vale producers coming through are adding a different shade to this famous region. 

There's plenty to explore in modern McLaren Vale wine and this pack is a great place to start! 

2022 Orbis Trousseau

Jura by way of McLaren Vale in this little number thanks to winemaker Lauren Langfield.

Trousseau grapes were hand picked from the vineyard then set to ferment with natural yeasts before being set to age in French oak for 6 months.

It comes out the other side as a charming red full of freshness and personality - foresty spices and herbs, sour berries, red berries and a crunch of acid and fine tannin. A bit impossible to put down once you get started...

2020 S.C. Pannell Basso Grenache

The Basso is a lighter, fresher, more 'smashable' version of Grenache from Steve Pannell.

It's Steve's minimal-intervention wine. It's bottled with a minimal amount of sulphur, unfined and unfiltered.

Steve's wines are all about melding with our Australian culture and this is the perfect fit for BBQs and beach cricket.

It's lighter in body, dappled with the lacy tannins and spice of early-picked Grenache - It's just a great anytime/anywhere red from one of the country's finest winemakers.

2021 Varney Wines Entrada GMT

McLaren Vale Grenache blend made in a happy, gentle style, a table wine modelled on winemaker Alan Varney's vintage time in Portugal.

A third Mourvedre and a dash of Touriga add some seriousness and weight but this is primarily a delicious open-knit Grenache from a winemaker to watch.

2021 Saltfleet Touriga Nacional

Touriga Nacional is perhaps Portugal's most known variety, and it grows particularly well in the maritime climate and sandy soils of McLaren Vale.

Winemakers Kyle & Jonny source the fruit for this wine from a small organic vineyard on The McMurtie Mile, using a hands off approach to bring these grapes into a beautifully structured and savoury red full of blue/black fruits, with body-ody-ody for days.

A truly delicious rendition of Touriga, at a great price too.

2020 Inkwell Infidels Primitivo

The Infidels is Primitivo sourced from the immaculate Inkwell vineyard in McLaren Vale.

Over the last few vintages it has gained a reputation for being one of the country's most drinkable/loveable alternate varieties, and is often the fastest-selling Inkwell wine - understandably so.

The oak is set firmly to the background of the mid-weight palate and the perky red fruits and spice of this variety on display for all to see. The fruit weight, tannin, and acidity playing perfectly with each other. Simply delightful drinking.

2021 Dune Blewitt Springs Shiraz

The Blewitt Springs sub-region of McLaren Vale typically producers a softer, more approachable style of Shiraz.

Brothers Duncan and Peter Lloyd are making the most of the regional characteristics here to deliver a McLaren Vale Shiraz that can be enjoyed immediately, as opposed to the more hulking full-bodied styles that look best with a few years under their belt.

This is made with very little interference from the boys - the fruit quality doing all the work.

It's a ripe yet easy drinking Shiraz which will be very difficult to put down.
