Winemaker Notes

Deep purple with crimson hues. An aromatic wine with lifted dark cherry and plum fruits, layers of chocolate, spice, and nuts. A concentrated and textured wine with layers of dark fruits - plums and dark cherry, combined with milk and dark chocolate notes. The finish is long with hints of roasted nuts, truffles, and licorice all lingering.

W&S 93
Wine & Spirits

Renae Hirsch made this fresh shiraz at Chalk Hill for the Alpha Crucis project, offering a shiraz with mineral intensity girding its dense black-cherry flavors. There’s brightness infusing every corner of the plump fruit, layering strawberry notes and rose-stem green notes over the darker plum and cherry depths. Powerful and gracious.

JS 92
James Suckling
A very vibrant and expressive shiraz that has quite intense ripe red-plum, blackberry and raspberry aromas with an edge of violets and cassis. The palate has a gently salty edge with quite composed and fleshy, approachable style.

Alpha Crucis, Australia
Alpha Crucis The Cellar Door Winery Image
Chalk Hill is is one of McLaren Vale’s premier wineries, owned by the Harvey family whose grape growing heritage dates back six generations in South Australia. There are six family-owned vineyards, first planted in 1897, and these century old vines still bear fruit today. Each vineyard has a different soil type and topography. Vineyards are certified organic. Some biodynamic methods are employed along with IPM (integrated pest management). Wines are labeled under Chalk Hill domestically in Australia, and overseas under both Alpha Crucis and Wits End labels. All wines (whatever the label) are made by Renae Hirsch, who in 2015 succeeded Emma Bekkers. Renae’s approach to winemaking is quite simple, making and drinking wines that have a purity of fruit expression, showcasing varietal, regional and vineyard characteristics. She believes this is achieved using as little intervention as possible, aiming to guide the wines through maturation before bottling to maintain freshness while having balance, elegance and finesse. Alpha Crucis wines mainly hail from the The Heritage Vineyard in central McLaren Vale. This site sits on Blanche Point Limestone formed between 56 and 34 million years ago. The soil comprises washed sand over clay, which limits vine vigor and hence reduces the number of grapes on each vine. The vines are on their own roots and trellised on a single cordon with vertical shoot positioning to enable good sunlight and air penetration in the vine canopy. Wines are only released in years that pass muster of quality and varietal integrity.

McLaren Vale Wine

South Australia

View all products

Known for opulent red wines with intense power and concentration, McLaren Vale is home to perhaps the most “classic” style of Australian Shiraz. Vinified on its own or in Rhône Blends, these hot-climate wines are deeply colored and high in extract with signature hints of dark chocolate and licorice. Cabernet Sauvignon is also produced in a similar style.

Whites, often made from Chardonnay or Sauvignon Blanc tend to be opulent and full of tropical, stone and citrus fruit.

Marked by an unmistakable deep purple hue and savory aromatics, Syrah makes an intense, powerful and often age-worthy red. Native to the Northern Rhône, Syrah achieves its maximum potential in the steep village of Hermitage and plays an important component in the Red Rhône Blends of the south, adding color and structure to Grenache and Mourvèdre. Syrah is the most widely planted grape of Australia and is important in California and Washington. Sommelier Secret—Such a synergy these three create together, the Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre trio often takes on the shorthand term, “GSM.”
