Bekkers

South Australia | McLaren Vale

James' Review

This brings together two high-performance, highly experienced and highly credentialled business and life partners. Toby Bekkers graduated with an honours degree in applied science in agriculture from the University of Adelaide, and over the ensuing years has had broad-ranging responsibilities as general manager of Paxton Wines in McLaren Vale, and as a leading exponent of organic and biodynamic viticulture. Emmanuelle Beckkers was born in Bandol in the south of France, and gained two university degrees, in biochemistry and oenology, before working for the Hardys in the south of France, which led her to Australia and a wide-ranging career, including Chalk Hill. Exports to the UK, Canada, France and China.

About

Viticulturist Toby Bekkers and his French-born wife and winemaker Emmanuelle craft Bekkers Wine. They share a combined 40 years of wine experience amassed in Australia and Europe. Few can claim a more extensive understanding of McLaren Vale. “Nothing we have seen overseas has diminished our conviction that McLaren Vale is capable of producing unique, world-class wines and we aim to be an emblem for the region.” Toby Bekkers.

Made in tiny volumes and sold primarily to a private mailing list, the signature of Bekkers wine is soft, silky texture. An accent on spice and fragrance is sympathetically supported by McLaren Vale’s hallmark generosity of flavour.

Specialities

Syrah (shiraz), grenache.
