Mclaren Vale
McLaren Vale is an iconic region of Australian viticulture located 20 miles south of the city of Adelaide. Thomas Hardy and John Reynella were among the first to plant in the region as far back as the early 1800s. The rolling topography lends itself to varying micro-climates but in broad terms, being wedged between the ocean and the Mount Lofty Ranges to the north, the area enjoys a cooler, more Mediterranean climate than the Barossa.

McLaren's reputation is due in no small part to the wealth of old vine Shiraz vineyards that blanket the area, some well over 100 years old. These vineyards are prized for producing tiny yields of extremely concentrated and complex wines. In addition to Shiraz, Grenache and Mourvedre are players here and produce some of the nation's most coveted Rhone style blends when incorporated with Shiraz.

Cult wines from old vines abound and are some of the most sought after wines in the world. Two Hands, Clarendon Hills, Fox Creek, Mollydooker, Noon, and many others are among the roll call of boutique producers that source here. (Wine/Appellations)
