Producer

Rob Gibson's wine interest began whilst working for Penfold’s in Auckland, New Zealand back in 1974. On his return to Australia he began working in the Penfold’s Cellar which started a long and successful career spanning 22 years under Penfold’s tutelage. He now runs the Gibson winery with his wife Anne and their knowledgeable team of wine enthusiasts. They have a vineyard in the Barossa Valley at Light Pass and one in the Eden Valley and also purchase grapes from the McLaren Vale and the Adelaide Hills. With over 40 years in the wine industry Rob’s hand-crafted wines reflect expert site selection from across the Barossa Valley and a focus on producing balanced and flavourful wines.

Region

McLaren Vale is situated south of The Barossa Valley in South Eastern Australia. The local climates vary enormously according to altitude and exposure to the cooling sea breezes. Red grapes flourish here due to the warm climate and varied soil type and the region is best known for soft and juicy Shiraz, old-vine Grenache, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. The climate is similar to that of the Mediterranean climate with four clear seasons. We can highly recommend the producers Kay Brothers, Clarendon Hills and Shirvington Estate from whom we have some fantastic wines.
