2020 McLaren Vale Release
Our 2020 release wines are perfectly balanced expressions of the McLaren Vale environ.
Each sourced from single vineyards in the Delabole subregion, our McLaren Vale Shiraz and Cabernet drops are refined and elegant.
Hand selecting only the best fruit
We source the best fruit to bring you a high quality wine for that vintage, no matter where we have to roam.
In 2018 we found some beautiful grapes from the Paradigm Vineyard in the heart of Marananga in the Barossa Valley, whilst in 2020, the Delabole subregion of McLaren Vale produced high quality grapes for perfect winemaking.
2020 McLaren Vale Shiraz
Introducing Chance Encounter Wines’ 2020 McLaren Vale Shiraz. Sourcing single vineyard grapes from McLaren Vale in 2020 was a real joy with the Delabole subregion doing particularly well due to great rainfall and heat at the perfect times.
This is an elegant and refined Shiraz that you can easily enjoy at any time of the year, from now until at least 2030.
Delabole's quiet beauty
Our elegant yet long lasting reds in 2020 derive from the Delabole sub region of Mclaren Vale, located in the southern foothills, just west of the Willunga township.
Delabole’s elevation and northern aspect make it a slightly warmer part of McLaren Vale which usually leads to an earlier harvest.
Red varieties in this region, with careful management, produce fruit of exceptional quality, showing concentrated intense dark fruit characters, vibrant colour, and freshness.
2020 McLaren Vale Cabernet
Our 2020 single vineyard McLaren Vale Cabernet is a perfectly balanced expression of this variety. The Delabole subregion produced full, fresh Cabernet bunches with small berry size - perfect for high quality winemaking.
Drink now or test your nerve and savour over the next ten years.
2018 Barossa Release
Introducing two bold Barossa reds that will stand the test of time. Both hail from the old vines of Paradigm Vineyard in the Barossa Valley’s premium sub-region, Marananga.
