Our Review

Their 25ha estate overlooks the township, and is planted to 20ha shiraz, 2.5ha bushvine grenache and 1ha bushvine mataro (plus 18.9ha of sauvignon blanc, chardonnay, pinot gris and shiraz in the Adelaide Hills). The shiraz planting allows the creation of a full range of styles, including Rose, Sparkling Shiraz, Fortified Shiraz and Estate Shiraz, along with the White Chalk Shiraz, so named because of the white chalk used to mark each barrel during the classification process.

About

The Lloyd Brothers, David and Matthew are third generation South Australian vignerons. Their grandfather started planting vines and making wine in McLaren Vale in the 1960’s. David and Matthew now have their individual vineyards in the Adelaide Hills and McLaren Vale. David owns and operates Lloyd Brothers Wine and Olive Company with his 65-hectare McLaren Vale Estate being home to the winery and cellar door. The Lloyd Brothers McLaren Vale Estate comprises 16 hectares Shiraz, 3 hectares Grenache and just under 1 hectare of Mourvèdre and is home to the first commercially planted Kalamata olive grove in South Australia. In 2015 David purchased the Miegunyah Vineyard on The Range in the southern region of the Adelaide Hills overlooking McLaren Vale. Miegunyah is a beautiful 45-hectare property with just over 25 hectares planted to vines. Most recently David has planted 2 hectares of what is believed to be the first Picpoul Blanc planted in the Adelaide Hills along with 1 hectare of Prosecco to complement the well-established Syrah, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Grigio. Matthew’s vineyards are located in the Adelaide Hills sub region of Lenswood giving Lloyd Brothers contrasting characteristics when creating and defining the range of cool climate wines they produce. Lloyd Brothers wines and olives are hand crafted to highlight the best fruit grown on the Estates with their McLaren Vale property also playing host to impressive festivals and events.
