McLaren Vale, Australia

Chalk Hill is a family owned wine company dedicated to making small batch, hand crafted wines of distinction. The Harvey family grape growing heritage goes back six generations in South Australia, and we now have six vineyards spread across the beautiful McLaren Vale wine region. Our home vineyard was first planted in 1897 and these century old vines still bear fruit today. It is our family commitment to make wines that reveal the unique place that is McLaren Vale, and to show our efforts from the vineyard to the bottle. To us, wine is more than just a drink, it is a reflection of our place and our life. Winery website  
Il Vivace Vermentino
Vermentino is an emerging varietal in Australia. It is widely planted across the Mediterranean coast of Italy and France. It's well suited to McLaren Vale's coastal position. This is the third vintage of Vermentino, producing a fresh aromatic wine that shows excellent varietal definition.
Luna Shiraz
Mainly from the certified organic Wits' End vineyard, a site named for the aggravation caused by the heavy black clay, known as Gilgai, Bay of Biscay or Terra Noir, that makes the vineyard virtually inaccessible in winter. Oldest vines planted 1973, with Heritage and SAVI1127 clones mostly on own rootstock. Primary ferment is finished in barrel with malolactic fully in oak. Aging for fourteen months in oak, with an additional two in tank. No fining or filtration. No acidification
