Cool climate Shiraz has been rapidly growing in reputation and popularity in the past few years. At Nepenthe they saw the potential for Shiraz in the Adelaide Hills when vines were planted at their Hahndorf vineyard in 1999. It’s an ideal site for Shiraz with high altitude, low vigour soils and northerly aspect. Nepenthe's aim with this wine is to produce an elegant style with pure, berry fruit, spice and medium weight with great balance, structure and approachability.

Winery Profile

5 Red Star Winery - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion 2014

Nepenthe quickly established its reputation as a producer of high quality wines, but when founder Ed Tweddell died unexpectedly in 2006, the business was purchased by McGuigan Simeon the following year. The winery was closed in 09, and winemaking operations transferred to Australian Vintage, McGuigan Simeons principal SA winery. (The Nepenthe winery has since been purchased by Peter Leske and Mark Kozned, and provides contract winemaking services via their Revenir venture.) Nepenthe has over 100ha of close-planted vineyards spread over four vineyards in the Adelaide Hills, with an exotic array of varieties. Exports to the UK, the US and other major markets.James Halliday
