Springs Road Wines

South Australia | Kangaroo Island

Our Review

Springs Road runs east-west across the northern part of Kangaroo Island. The Springs Road vineyards were established in 1994 on a small sheep property about 7km west of Kingscote and are now owned and operated by Joch Bosworth and Louise Hemsley-Smith from Battle of Bosworth in McLaren Vale (see separate entry). Small quantities of Chardonnay, Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon and a Cabernet Sauvignon Shiraz blend are made from the very low-yielding 20-year-old vines. The vineyards have been managed organically since 2016, and are awaiting certification. The wine label is adapted from Louis Freycinet's 1808 map of Southern Australia, ‘Terre Napoleon'. Exports to Hong Kong.

About

Springs Road runs east-west across the northern part of Kangaroo Island, South Australia. Springs Road vineyards were established in 1994 on a small sheep property about 7km west of Kingscote and are now owned and operated by Joch Bosworth and Louise Hemsley-Smith from McLaren Vale’s Battle of Bosworth wines. Many of our winemaking friends have headed to Tasmania; we chose a smaller, closer island which we believe has huge potential. Wines are 100% estate grown and hand-made from the very low yielding vines which are now well over 20 years old. Vineyards have been managed organically since we took over in early 2016 and we are awaiting certification. The Springs Road wine label is adapted from Louis Freycinet’s 1808 map of Southern Australia, ‘Terre Napoléon’.
