First established in 1981 by the Haselgrove family, Haselgrove has recently reinvented itself under the ownership of four passionate Italian Australian friends - including former Bushing King and McLaren Vale wine identity Steve Maglieri.
The core of the Haselgrove operation is the (up to 60yr old) McLaren vale vineyards surrounding the winery, with fruit supplemented from other vineyards around the Vale, up into the Adelaide Hills and also from Coonawarra (actually the Haselgrove website gives excellent information about their vineyard sources, which is great to see).
The emphasis at Haselgrove is on small batch winemaking, with the winery specifically setup to allow for small parcels, allowing them to be kept separate and then judiciously blended. The winemaking itself is covered by former 'Young Winemaker of the Year' finalist Greg Clack along with Matt Copping. At this stage the winemaking style is very much in the thick and rich McLaren Vale style but the emphasis in more recent vintages has been to pull everything back to something more elegant and savoury.
Haselgrove Wine Types
The Haselgrove wine range is quintessentially McLaren Vale in origin, though with plenty of labels to choose from it is not purely all about Shiraz. Wine Types include a Semillon/Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Grigio, Chardonnay, Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, a Cabernet Merlot and a rather special sparkling Shiraz.
