Located at around 40 kilometres south of Adelaide, north of McLaren Vale, Clarendon Hills has become, over the vintages, a hallmark of Australian wines. Founded in 1990 by the great Romanian winegrower, Roman Bratasiuk, great wines are produced from these pre-phylloxeric vines which were planted in this region in the 1880s by European populations. The Clarendon winegrowing zone’s terroir is made up of a mosaic of soils (sandy clay, schist, quartz) spread out according to the altitude of the plots.
The grape varieties are comprised of Grenache, Syrah, Merlot, Mourvèdre and Cabernet Sauvignon.
In a constant search of excellence, Clarendon Hills practices a non-interventionist philosophy and produces, thorugh precise vinification, great wines which authentically express the typicality of their terroir of origin.
