Shingleback Wine

During the 1990’s, the Davey brothers brought their combined expertise in winemaking, farming & business to continue & develop the estate first farmed by their Grandfather in 1957. The goal was, and remains, to produce affordable, quality wines that express the true character of McLaren Vale.

The sustainably managed 120-hectare vineyard is planted predominantly with Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon, with smaller plantings that include Chardonnay, Fiano, Mataro, Tempranillo, Grenache, Graciano and Touriga Nacional.

A modern, but minimalist, approach to crafting the wines is taken and now, during the 25th vintage, we still believe that respecting the fruit is crucial, resulting in balanced, food friendly wines, expressive of their terroir and variety.

From its genesis in 1998, when the first wine (Shingleback Shiraz) was released under the Shingleback label, the Shingleback portfolio has grown into a collection of fine wines that include Shingleback, The Bio Project, Red Knot and The Gate. Each made in its distinct style, these wines showcase the best the McLaren Vale region has to offer.

Winner of the McLaren Vale Wine Show’s “Most Successful Exhibitor” from 2016 – 2022 and more than 70 trophies (including the 2006 Jimmy Watson Memorial Trophy, 560 Gold Medals earned (to 2021)), Shingleback has been recognized both domestically and internationally for its outstanding quality and consistency.
