The Hedonist Shiraz

The Hedonist Shiraz

The Hedonist wines adopt a minimalistic approach to winemaking, believing that good wines are “made in the vineyard.”

Great care is taken in the estate grown certified biodynamic vineyard.

A dynamic trio – the winemaking team consists of Walter Clappis, veteran winemaker of 31 vintages, daughter, Kimberly and her partner James Cooter. Walter’s experience and wisdom plus the energy and enthusiasm of the new generation has created the perfect balance in the winery. All the wines reflect a purity which is consistent with the Winemakers and their philosophies.

The fruit for the Hedonist Shiraz is predominately estate grown on their organic/biodynamic certified vineyard situated in the Willunga foothills, McLaren Vale. The idyllic St Vincent’s Gulf lies 10km to the West. The soil is rich loam over clay with patches of underlying limestone, giving the wine a rich and fullness of pallet.
