Simon Hackett Logo

The winery is perfectly situated on the hill as you enter the McLaren Vale region; the cellar door is light, bright, with a long arched verandah looking over the vines.

In 1984, Simon Hackett decided to concentrate fully on establishing his own boutique label and today crushes grapes grown in the McLaren Vale and Barossa Valley regions of South Australia, producing a range of rich, bold, innovative wines.

Simon Hackett Shiraz

Region: McLaren Vale
Current Vintage: 2013 | Cartons 12 x 750ml

Great colour, nice and deep. The nose has spicy peppery aromas leading onto a palate with loads of fruit which is sweet and ripe typical of the grape variety. You can catch some pepper, lack on the palate and the vanilla from the American oak with the finish being firm and a nice length of palate.
