McLaren Vale III Associates
OverviewMcLaren Vale III Associate's wines are a family owned winery. It consistently scores well into the 90 points-plus range when judged by James Halliday (Author of the Australian Wine Companion) and has some amazing International trophies. Proudly nestled in the heart of stunning McLaren Vale wine region, they pride themselves on delivering product consistency from their Estate owned vineyards with a vision to ‘Capture the essence of a time and place by consistently striving to create the worlds most memorable and desirable wines.’
Leading the brand is their ‘Squid Ink’ Shiraz range, which allows them to take their customers on a journey experiencing the Shiraz winemaking world, looking at three different styles.
Beyond its natural beauty, the neighbouring ocean plays a crucial role in protecting the viticulture of the region, so it only seemed natural to name their flagship wine in honour of this blessing.
‘Squid Ink’ became the obvious fit when they came to realise the magnitude of fruit quality they had invested in, where its profound colour would be the first impression each person gets when they pour a glass.
Campbell Greer, Winemaker, has toiled in the family vineyards since a very young age, learning from his father and helping out with vineyard maintenance to the highest standard. He is now our sole winemaker, taking the brand from strength to strength.
