Chalk Hill

South Australia | McLaren Vale

Our Review

The growth of Chalk Hill has accelerated after passing from parents John and Diana Harvey to grapegrowing sons Jock and Tom. Both are heavily involved in wine industry affairs. Further acquisitions mean the vineyards now span each district of McLaren Vale, planted to both the exotic (savagnin, barbera and sangiovese) and mainstream (shiraz, cabernet sauvignon, grenache, chardonnay and cabernet franc). The Alpha Crucis series is especially praiseworthy. Exports to most markets; exports to the US under the Alpha Crucis label, to Canada under the Wits End label.

About

Chalk Hill is a family owned wine company dedicated to making small batch, hand crafted wines of distinction. The Harvey family grape growing heritage goes back six generations in South Australia. Our six unique vineyards throughout McLaren Vale, are purposefully planted with varieties that best reflect varietal and regional character.

Our Alpha Crucis brand, showcases an ultra premium wine range that focuses on the region’s reputation for producing world class red styles. The range includes both a single vineyard Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon, and a unique initiative, the Alpha Crucis Winemaker’s Series. A namesake for the brightest star in the Southern Cross constellation, Alpha Crucis wines are an extension of this maxim, aspiring to create the finest wines, handcrafted from the most exceptional parcels of fruit from only the best vintages.
