Buy Shingleback Shiraz The Davey Estate
Dark red-purple. Brooding mulberry & ripe strawberry aromas with base notes of mocha oak fill the glass. The mid-palate of this full-bodied wine overflows with a compote of dark berries & earthy minerality. The integrated fine-grained French & American oak further enhance the texture & length of the wine.

Wine maker notes
Shiraz (predominantly clones 1654, BVRC12 and BVRC30), grown on both red & black soils over limestone on the Davey Estate Vineyard, are selected for this wine. The wine is hand-crafted in small open and static fermenters to maximise the potential of each small parcel of fruit. Maturation for an average of 14 months in fine grained American and French oak hogsheads softens, enhances & integrates the fruit & structural components of the wine.

Let the Davey brothers introduce you to McLaren Vale, one of Australiaís most renowned wine growing areas. During the 1990ís, Kym & John Davey brought their combined expertise in winemaking, farming & business to continue & develop the estate first farmed by their Grandfather in 1957. Their goal was, and remains, to produce affordable, quality wines that express the true character of McLaren Vale. The sustainably managed family estate has a predominantly Shiraz & then Cabernet Sauvignon focus. The smaller plantings of Chardonnay & Semillon also benefit from Johnís fastidious winemaking skills, instilled during his early days as a specialist white winemaker. A modern, but minimalist, approach to crafting the wines is taken. Respecting the fruit is crucial. Small batch open fermentation, gentle handling, pressing and maturation result in balanced, food friendly wines, expressive of their terroir and variety. From itís genesis in 1998, when the first wine (Shingleback Shiraz) was released under the Shingleback label, the Shingleback portfolio has grown into a collection of fine wines that include Shingleback, Haycutters, Red Knot and The Gate. Each made in its distinct style, these wines showcase the best the McLaren Vale region has to offer. They also represent a family committed to producing outstanding wines from the land they love.
