Chalk Hill, McLaren Vale

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.

Vineyards

The grapes in Chalk Hill wines are primarily sourced from six family-owned vineyards in the McLaren Vale district, 40 kilometres south of Adelaide in South Australia. McLaren Vale's Mediterranean type climate of cool, wet winters and warm, dry summers provides perfect growing conditions for premium grapes. Each Vineyard has a different soil type and topography, providing unique growing environments for the grapes. We take these unique factors and combine them with expert viticultural management to produce grapes of distinct character and appeal that make our wines so sought after.

Sourced from a single vineyard – Lopresti Block 10 in Willunga. Vermentino is a variety that is well suited to our Mediterranean climate. It produces lovely aromatic and vibrant fruit in the vineyard.

Winemaker Notes:
Grapes were harvested in the cool evening, then gently pressed to tank with minimal skin contact for fermentation. Fermented cool and without oak to preserve the freshness and vibrancy of the fruit. Some lees contact and stirring in tank adds a layer of complexity and texture.
