ST ANDREWS ESTATE, at Andrews Road, Macdonald Park, was named after early pioneers, the Andrews family, who settled in our district in the 1850s. There were wheat paddocks, scotch thistles and deer roamed where our vineyards now grow. Our warm dry Mediterranean summers on the 35º degree latitude, with evening breezes from nearby Gulf St Vincent, are ideal for growing grapes with intense fruit flavours and wonderful rich colours. We especially selected Merlot, Shiraz, Sangiovese, Petit Verdot, Chardonnay - and more recently, Sauvignon Blanc - as ideal varieties for our region and our climate. They love the warm, maritime terroir of the sun-bronzed Adelaide Plains. We carefully manage our vines to produce only 2-3 tonnes per acre of top quality grapes. Restricted drip-irrigation, moisture-monitoring, low-rainfall, meticulous hand-pruning and fruit-thinning produces crops in perfect balance with small bunches and small berries. Our vines at ST ANDREWS ESTATE are virtually disease-free. By introducing beneficial insects into the vineyards, we do not use pesticides and chemical use is minimised.
