McLaren Vale Vines for McLaren Vale Wines

At this time of year, more time is spent in the vines than on a desk chair.   Watering schedules,  grape sampling for optimum picking times, machinery preparation and then mechanical harvesting, hand picking and of course the distribution or processing of the fruit.  It can be manic, there can be yelling but overall it is a great example of  teamwork with a decent amount of sweat.   The rewards come with the sunrises and sunsets and perhaps a nice cold beer for breakfast.

Enjoy our picture gallery so far and the next time you drink an Oliver’s Taranga Wine you can think of all the dusty, sticky boots that made it happen.

Our 71 year old shiraz block is stooped and gnarly, but the wine from this fruit is ‘liquid gold’.

 

It’s a shiraz view – did you know most wine varieties can be identified their leaves.
