Hedonist Wines

South Australia | McLaren Vale

James' Review

Walter Clappis has been making wine in McLaren Vale for almost 40 years, and over that time has won innumerable trophies and gold medals, including the prestigious George Mackey Memorial Trophy with his 2009 The Hedonist Shiraz, chosen as the best wine exported from Australia that year. He now has daughter Kimberley and son-in-law James Cooter (both with impressive CVs) supporting him on the winery floor. The estate plantings of shiraz, cabernet sauvignon, tempranillo and grenache are the cornerstone of the business. Exports include the UK, the US, Canada, Singapore, Thailand and China.
