Peter Teakle Regional Shiraz was released in 2017 and contains the best grapes we could source from the Clare Valley in South Australia. This is a powerful wine with great intensity and inky dark colour. Aged in small French oak for 24 months, this wine is drinking well now, but further cellaring will add complexity.
Situated on the Teakle property in Port Lincoln, 2 kilometres from the foreshore, with 150 meters elevation. The soils are rich combination of sandy loam topsoil overlying a friable red-brown clay loam subsoil. The moderately warm summer temperatures and maritime breeze allow perfect ripening conditions in the vineyard. The long sunshine hour days encourage even ripening of the grapes, while the gentle breeze helps cool the bunches, retaining the beautiful natural acidity.
