Located only 35kms from Adelaide, the welcoming McLaren Vale is one of Australia's more renowned wine regions, famous for producing some of the best wines in the world. Its idyllic Mediterranean climate, with long warm days and short cool nights, makes the region perfect for producing key varieties like Shiraz, Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon and Grenache.
McLaren Vale's proximity to the ocean means the region very rarely experiences drought and frost. While there is a wide variety of soil types in McLaren Vale, the common trait is that all are free draining, necessitating irrigation (or in some cases, intentional dry farming). This allows for and enables accurate irrigation control and manipulation to achieve desired fruit production. McLaren Vale is known for producing big wines with lots of flavour, colour, and structure – and Ingoldby wines are no exception, expressing the beautiful and varied terroir.
