Hastwell and Lightfoot

We are grape growers producing the very best fruit we can for McLaren Vale winemakers. As we see it, without quality grapes there can be no great wines. But there is only one way to judge whether you are producing fruit of good flavour, and that obviously is by taking it through to the bottled product. So the small parcels of wine we make each year are in many respects our quality assessment programme, checking that our pruning methods, trellis system, water and fertiliser regimes are all working to produce grapes of superior quality. Our vineyard located on the sandy northern slopes of the McLaren vale is predominately planted to the major varieties – Chardonnay, Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon. However more recently we have planted 2 varieties new to Australia which suit well with our climate and soil type – Viognier and Tempranillo. We will be watching their development like a mother waiting the birth of a child. Our current wines are only 2, a Cabernet Sauvignon & Cabernet Franc blend and a straight Shiraz. Both made in very limited quantities but to our great joy now being enjoyed in Germany, New Zealand and U.S.A. as well as by our direct mail customers in Australia. Our objective is to stay small and continue to produce wines we believe are best described as “ Wines made for Eating”.
