Neagles Rock was established in 1997 by Steve Wiblin and Jane Willson. With the acquisition 20 acres of vineyard, Neagles Rock has quickly established itself as a leading winery in the Clare Valley. James Halliday rates Neagles Rock as a "Four Star" winery for five years running, which equates to an 'outstanding winery capable of producing wines of the highest calibre'.
Clare Valley is situated approximately 120 kilometers north-east of Adelaide in the Mount Lofty Range and has predominantly iron-rich soils over limestone subsoils. The climate is continental, with cold winters and dry, hot summers. Riesling is the dominant grape here, but Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz, and blends of the two are the workhorse wines of the region. These cool climate Cabernets and Shiraz attain an elegant structure, with abundant fruit character and fine minerality in the midpalate.
Neagles Rock Shiraz 2010
Clare Valley Shiraz doesn't need to prove itself. What you get here is a wonderful potpourri of concentrated spice and generous blackberry characters with fruit intensity that assures excellent cellaring potential.
