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. -JH
