Main & Cherry

South Australia | Adelaide Hills

Our Review

Michael Sexton grew up on the property and graduated in oenology from the University of Adelaide in 2003. Grapes from the existing shiraz plantings were sold to other wineries but in ’10 the first single vineyard Shiraz was made and the Main & Cherry brand name chosen. Since then plantings of bush-vine grenache and mataro have been made. The business has grown with the purchase of an established vineyard in Clarendon planted to 2.4ha of shiraz and 0.9ha of grenache (the plantings at the Cherry Gardens Vineyard consist of 0.8ha shiraz and 0.2ha each of mataro and grenache).

About

Michael Sexton grew up on the property and graduated in oenology from the University of Adelaide in 2003. Grapes from the original home vineyard at Cherry Gardens were sold to other wineries but in '10 the first single vineyard Shiraz was made and the Main & Cherry brand name chosen. Since then plantings of bushvine grenache and mataro have been made. The business has grown with the purchase of an established vineyard above the Clarendon township planted to 2.4ha of shiraz and 1.0ha of grenache, with plans to open a cellar door at this site in 2022.
