Mike and Judy Press established their Kenton Valley Vineyards in 1998, when they purchased 34ha of land in the Adelaide Hills at an elevation of 500m. They planted mainstream coolclimate varieties (merlot, shiraz, cabernet sauvignon, sauvignon blanc, chardonnay and pinot noir) intending to sell the grapes to other wine producers. Even an illustrious 43-year career in the wine industry did not prepare Mike for the downturn in grape prices that followed and that led to the development of the Mike Press wine label. They produce high quality sauvignon blanc, chardonnay, rose, pinot noir, merlot, shiraz, cabernet merlot and cabernet sauvignon, which are sold at mouth-wateringly low prices. I've decided to give this winery/ maker proprietary five stars because there is no other producer offering estate-grown and made wines at prices to compete with these.
