Hawkers Gate aims to make consistently high quality wines, showcasing the flavours and style of the McLaren Vale region. A balance of science and traditional methods is used to allow the fruit to take centre stage and express its true potential in the resulting wine. These wines are made to be enjoyable both when released and after short to medium-term cellaring. Hawkers Gate wines are easy drinking, yet still have to power and fruit that McLaren Vale is known for.

In making Hawkers Gate white wines we strive for a balance between simplicity and complexity. The aim is to let the underlying fruit of the wines speak for itself, whilst at the same time being supported by the careful use of oak and other winemaking techniques such as malolactic fermentation and extended lees contact.

Our red wines are built around a philosophy of softness and approachability, while at the same time being complex, flavoursome and bold.
Age-old techniques such as open fermenting and basket pressing are used to extract the full potential of the fruit in the softest way possible.
