Georges Wines

South Australia | Clare Valley

James' Review

This venture began with Nick George's acquisition of the Springwood Vineyard in the Armagh Valley district of the Clare Valley. The 10ha vineyard was planted between 1996 and 2000, shiraz by some distance the most important of the varieties. Nick understood the proud history of the vineyard, which for a number of years supplied Leasingham with all of its grapes. He appointed O'Leary Walker as contract winemaker, an astute move. In 2017 Georges Wines acquired Olssen's 26ha vineyard at Auburn, lifting it vineyards to 36ha and allowing an expansion in the production of new and existing wines.

About

Georges wine was born from the love of the Clare Valley. Nick George`s desire was to own a beautiful piece of it, this led him to purchase a small valley boarded by McDonald Road and Benbournie road in the Armagh Valley.
