Lopresti Home Block Vineyard – Flour Mill Road, Whites Valley, McLaren Vale.
McLaren Vale’s first Glera plantings. The Glera is grown on the Lopresti Home Block, less than 2 kilometers from the coastal town of Aldinga and only 4 kilometres from the beach itself. Ngaltinga Formation derived alluvial grey sandy clay soils with pockets of sand interbeds support healthy canopy growth which protects the fruit’s delicate thin skin from any sunburn. Cooling sea breezes which run across the Gulf of St Vincent cool the vineyard and help to retain freshness and vibrancy.
