Item Description

Wine Spectator 90
"Fresh and sleak, with a vibrant feel to the red berry and blackberry flavors, hinting at mint as the finish lingers on a polished texture. Drink now through 2016" Harvey Steiman


"Bright plum red. Fragrant strawberry and black cherry aromas are subtly enhanced with floral nuances and hints of savoury oak. The mid-palate overflows with ripe, luscious berries and the long fruit finish is defined with a fresh acidity and subtle American and French oak. A medium - full bodied wine that is enticing and seductive in its youth." ~ Winery notes

Let the Davey brothers introduce you to McLaren Vale, one of Australia's most renowned wine growing areas. During the 1990's, 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 John's 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 it's 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.
