Originally founded in 1990, Clarence Hill today is known for making wines style and drinkability using our own vineyards and our family of growers.
Our grapes are sourced from our vineyards in the Adelaide wine region, with this wine using only McLaren Vale. A mixture of vinification techniques, touched by tradition, are used to capture each vineyard’s character.
The wine is matured separately in oak vats and tanks with a smaller portion in small barrels before blending. The aim is to produce a fresh style of Shiraz with structure and supple tannin.
Clarence Hill Wines are made to capture classic varietal notes – they are ‘Naturally Blessed Vineyards’
