Finniss River Vineyard

South Australia | Currency Creek

James' Review

The Hickinbotham family established several great vineyards, the last of these being that of Finniss River in 1999. The planting mix was good, dominated by 31.3ha of shiraz and 20.9ha of cabernet sauvignon. Between then and February 2015, when Adam and Lauren Parkinson purchased the vineyard, all the grapes were sold, which brought Adam, during his time as general manager of a winery in McLaren Vale, as well as general manager of one of Australia's largest vineyard management companies, into contact with the family and its grapes. Grape sales still remain, and will remain for the foreseeable future, but the cellar door is the outlet for local sales, and exports to China, the US and Singapore have already been established.


Our family owned vineyard is located 75kms south of Adelaide, in the cool maritime climate of South Australia’s Fleurieu Peninsula. The first vines were planted in 1999, and include shiraz, cabernet sauvignon, chardonnay and pinot noir. With the cooler climate providing perfect growing conditions, coupled with the abundance of water, and our philosophy of small batch production, our vineyard produces consistently high quality wines that display bold fruit and characterise the terroir of the vineyard.
