Meet Your Maker4 April 2020 to 17 October 2020 Beresford Estate, 252 Blewitt Springs Road, McLaren Flat, SA, Australia. $37.75
Your destination: Beresford Wines, a family-owned estate established in 1985 and passionately South Australian. You'll meet chief winemaker and share a six-wine tasting flight focused on the qualities that set Beresford apart.
Each of the wines - Angelique premium cuvee, Estate grenache, Estate cabernet sauvignon, Estate shiraz, Limited Release shiraz and sparkling shiraz - will be paired with a tasting plate of regional flavours.
You'll be hosted in the Beresford Tasting Pavilion, an intimate space that's all clean lines and views to the 28-hectare property. The site is among the most elevated in McLaren Vale, sitting 130 metres above sea level. Deep sand above the clay sub-soils allows the vines to be dry-grown with minimal or no irrigation, creating wines of intense flavours and soft, mouth-filling tannins.
Dix is a South Australian who has spent more than 20 years making wine in regions including Langhorne Creek, Coonawarra, the Riverland and Clare Valley.
