With 6 plots spread the breadth and width of the Vale Tom Harvey and the Guys at Chalk Hill have the enviable position of being able to plant a diverse range of varietals specific to the different terroir that suits each vineyard.
Chalk Hill’s tale has been growing for over 6 generations through the Harvey family and is still today committed to hand crafting wines. Wines that show off not just the grape and its surroundings but the character and personality of its creators. Amidst usual suspects Shiraz and Cabernet,
Less than 40km south of Adelaide, McLaren Vale is another one of South Australia's renowned Shiraz producers, accounting for roughly 50% of grapes crushed annually. The climate is markedly different from the Barossa, being much more Mediterranean with four clear seasons and higher rainfalls. McLaren Vale reds reflect this, showing deep complexity and power along with the ability to cellar for decades. While Shiraz grabs the most attention, chocolate-rich Cabernet Sauvignons, Chardonnays and Viogniers are worth sampling.
The climate is influenced by ocean breezes coming in from the Gulf of St. Vincent to the west and the altitude of the Sellicks Hill Range to the south. Soil type is varied, ranging from red-brown loam and sand to dark clay and the often-mentioned terra rosa. A misspell of the Italian phrase "terra rossa" (meaning "red soil"), this ruddy-red stuff is left behind when limestone breaks down, and any viticulturist will tell you it's great stuff to grow vines in due
