Pale salmon pink. Rose petal and cranberry aromas lift from the glass. The palate is filled with flavours of strawberry, raspberry and mixed peel, along with earthy textural elements. The sweet fruit flavours are defined by a lingering natural acidity and savoury moreishness.

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.
The Red Knot family of wines are designed for immediate enjoyment, full of ripe, fruit driven flavours. The style is bright, fragrant and varietal with the emphasis on fruit richness, giving the wine lover a delicious wine experience at an affordable price.
