The most varietally intense and structured Cabernet Sauvignon from the Shingleback & Petrucci Vineyards is chosen in only the best years to create this limited release wine. Very fine grained French oak hogsheads are used to allow a long, slow maturation of the wine and subtle oak integration. When maturation & oak integration are perfect, individual barrels are selected & blended to create the fruit power, complexity & harmonious balance that the Shingleback D Block Reserve wines are known for.

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

The sustainably managed 120 hectare family estate 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. Respecting the fruit is crucial. Small batch open fermentation, gentle handling, pressing and maturation result in balanced, food friendly wines, expressive of their terroir and variety.

From it’s 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, Haycutters, Red Knot and The Gate. Each made in its distinct style, these wines showcase the best the McLaren Vale region has to offer. They also represent a family committed to producing outstanding wines from the land they love.
