McLaren Vale, Australia




This young vineyard of profound pedigree offers a solid introduction to the Clarendon Hills collection. Taste the rocks and listen to their ancient story.

Domaine Clarendon Syrah vineyard was designed and planted by Roman Bratasiuk in 2003. Astralis vineyard cuttings were propagated across a select Clarendon site that spans an 1100-metre width and an 80-metre altitude drop. The 36-acre vineyard also features a major eastern facade that descends into the ancient Onkaparinga Gorge and sits atop some of the oldest geology in all of McLaren Vale. The Clarendon location overlooks all of Blewitt Springs and the greater McLaren Vale and St Vincent Gulf vista. A simply magical location that is the embodiment of an enduring dream of Roman Bratasiuk’s to design and create a world-class vineyard and further his 33-year pursuit of capturing ultimate terroir expressions across the local sub-districts of Blewitt Springs and Clarendon regions in McLaren Vale.

Single stake, non-cordon trellised, 7-foot tall bush vines reflect the ancient terroir of the Clarendon sub-region with the astonishing constitution. The site is McLaren Vale’s highest altitude vineyard and is located in the coolest part of McLaren Vale on its North Eastern border with the cool climate of Adelaide Hills wine region. The site demonstrates a definitive sense of place and exhibits a cool climate Syrah character laced with natural acidity and Asian spices.
