Clarence Hill Story
An old label has been revived with new identity and purpose. Nick Haselgrove saw merit in Clarence Hill because it has provenance; since its inception in 1990, it has pleased many customers with its generous, full-fruited wines. Nick appreciated that the brand needed rejuvenation, with improved production quality and smart fruit selection, but – as the Clarence Hill label and branding shows – there remains a respectful nod to classic styling. Its growth and improvement is underlined by premium value, and high praise despite its modest pricing. As the entry level to Nick’s portfolio, Clarence Hill wines achieve a pleasing meld of soft palates, ripe fruit and rich flavour – approachable wines that drinkers have no qualms reaching for a second glass of.
Our vineyards are located in the Adelaide Zone which encompasses the famous regions in which we grow our grapes. Our resources are in Langhorne Creek, Currency Creek and McLaren Vale with some wines being sourced from inland irrigated regions.
These vines produce a wonderful array of fruit for our winemaker, who uses the craft of winemaking with a twist of art, tradition and science. Our modern wineries embrace quality but with an eye for value and this drives the core of Clarence Hill’s wines with out forgetting what Australia is so good at.
For something a little more serious, our reserve wines show additional intensity and maturation from oak barrels with a firm guiding hand on the specific regionality our special blocks in our vineyards can offer.
Clarence Hill makes wines using well know varieties including Chardonnay, Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon and Grenache. Sometimes we do something interesting and different just for fun.
Naturally Blessed Vineyards has become our talking point over a glass or two and defines classic Australian wine. Enjoy.
