Only select parcels of Shiraz grown on both red & black soils over limestone on the Davey Estate vineyard are chosen for this wine.

The wine is handcrafted in small open & static fermenters to maximise the potential of each small parcel of fruit.

Maturation for an average of 12 months in new to 6 year old fine-grained American (50%) and French (50%) oak hogsheads softens, enhances & integrates the fruit & structural components of the wine.

Let the Davey brothers introduce you to McLaren Vale, one of Australia’s most renowned wine growing areas.
During the 1990’s, Kym & John Davey brought their combined expertise in winemaking, farming & business to continue & develop the estate first farmed by their Grandfather in 1957. Their goal was, and remains, to produce affordable, quality wines that express the true character of McLaren Vale.

The sustainably managed 120 hectare family estate is planted predominantly with Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon, with smaller plantings that include Chardonnay, Fiano, Mataro, Tempranillo, Grenache, Graciano and Touriga Nacional.

A modern, but minimalist, approach to crafting the wines is taken. Respecting the fruit is crucial. Small batch open fermentation, gentle handling, pressing and maturation result in balanced, food friendly wines, expressive of their terroir and variety.

From it’s genesis in 1998, when the first wine (Shingleback Shiraz) was released under the Shingleback label, the Shingleback portfolio has grown into a collection of fine wines that include Shingleback, The Bio Project, Haycutters, Red Knot and The Gate. Each made in its distinct style, these wines showcase the best the McLaren Vale region has to offer. They also represent a family committed to producing outstanding wines from the land they love.

Shingleback has long produced estate-grown wine under its familiar white label. From the 2010 vintage onward in the new, contemporary, silver package, this designation is proudly declared on the front labels, underscoring the inherent value and quality of these wines. “Everything we do in the vineyard is aimed at giving our customers around the world a great experience, bringing a sense of the time and place that is each unique vintage at The Davey Estate, McLaren Vale,” says John Davey. “We take a modern but minimalist approach to crafting our wines using small batch open fermenters, gentle handling, pressing and maturation that respect the fruit, which results in balanced food friendly wines, expressive of their terroir and variety.”

Deep black cherry in colour. The cherry and blackberry primary aromas are highlighted with hints of mocha, freshly turned earth and cedar.

Flavours of blackberry conserve, blueberry and violet, along with mineral elements and nuances of oak, flow through the finely textured palate.
