About Langhorne Creek

Langhorne Creek lies on the ancient floodplain of the Bremer River. Not far from the township of Strathalbyn, it is one of five distinct regions that make up the Fleurieu. Fertile alluvial soils and a temperate climate are the key to soft, mouth-watering reds with wonderful approachability and the capacity to age. Varietal cabernet sauvignon smacks of red currant and mint, while juicy shiraz is earthy and generous. These are supple wines that provide a valuable softening component in multi-regional blends. A typical Langhorne Creek blend combines shiraz and cabernet with plummy merlot or malbec. Tropical Verdelho and wood matured fortified wines are also traditional. Pioneered by Frank Potts in the 1860s, early Langhorne Creek vineyards are steeped in history. Now comprising 6,500 ha, sweeping expanses of high yielding vines are managed by flood irrigation and modern mechanisation systems. Warm weather gives richness and flavour tempered by southerly ocean winds over Lake Alexandrina. Small local estates and family cellar doors have been joined by large corporate holdings in recent years.
