Shirvington Estate

Shirvington Estate really demonstrates that small is beautiful. Producing red wines only, the family team behind their labels consistently garner scores of 90 points and above from major wine critics, particularly, Robert Parker. In fact, its beginnings were tremendous from the first commercial release of the 2001 Cabernet Sauvignon that helped it to win the Bushy Trophy for the Wine of the Year Award at the McLaren Vale Wine Show in 2002. Paul and Lynn Shirvington, helped by their sons Tony and Mark now manage some 26 hectares of prime Grenache, Mataro (Mourvedre), Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon in Willunga on the Fleurieu Peninsula of McLaren Vale. Their finest wines are the Shirvington Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz made with the best fruit from each vintage after a rigorous selection. These super-premium wines have won acclaim worldwide, especially the Cabernet Sauvignon that has frequently been referred to as ‘The Screaming Eagle of South Australia’. It is a hedonistic wine that flys the flag of fruit generosity proudly from the warm McLaren conditions but charms with its elegance and confidence. The use of high quality oak and a minimum 12 months barrel ageing render soft, fine tannins that give immediacy as well as a strong statement of good potential for the development of further complexity. This is really a fine, very fine wine. Like the Shirvington Cabernet Sauvignon, the Shirvington Shiraz is the product of estate grown fruit only from the original 1996 plantings.
