Beresford Wines

South Australia | McLaren Vale

James' Review

This is a sister company to Step Rd Wines in Langhorne Creek, owned and run by VOK Beverages. The estate plantings are of cabernet sauvignon and shiraz (10ha each), chardonnay (5.5ha) and grenache (2.5ha), but they account for only a part of the substantial production. Some of the wines offer excellent value. Exports to the UK, the US, Germany, Denmark, Poland, Singapore, Hong Kong and China.

About

Our 28 hectare vineyard was first planted in the 1960’s and located at the height of one of McLaren Vale’s most elevated sites in the cool Blewitt Springs sub-region, sitting 130 meters above sea level. Grown in ancient sandy soils, the deep sand above the clay sub-soils allow the vines to be dry-grown with minimal or no irrigation, creating wines of intense flavours & soft mouth filling tannins. Our vineyard is a true representation of McLaren Vale’s most successful wine-grape varieties –gnarly old bush vine Grenache, balanced Shiraz & Cabernet Sauvignon and leading clones of Chardonnay.
