Background

The Sandpiper range comprises six popular varietals; Riesling, Pinot Gris, Chardonnay, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz. All of the grapes come from our Thorn-Clarke estate vineyards in the Barossa and the wines are handmade with the dedication of our winemaking team. The whites are sourced from our coolest vineyard site at Mt Crawford, located at the southern extremities of the Eden Valley, whilst the reds primarily come from our warmer St Kitts and Milton Park vineyards with a small amount of fruit from our Kabininge vineyard located near Tanunda. The Sandpiper range has developed a strong following in Australia due to the value offered and the sheer 'drinkability' of the range. The reds are produced to ensure that they are true to variety and region, plenty of good honest Barossa fruit, subtle use of oak to ensure the fruit shines through and soft approachable tannins ensure they drink well on release yet have structure to be cellared for up to 5 years. The whites are typical Eden Valley, showing good acid, lifted fruit character and a crisp clean finish.
