Kersbrook Hill Wines
Kersbrook Hill Wines
Located in the picturesque Northern Adelaide Hills region, Kersbrook Hill Wines & Cider is a family-owned and -operated boutique winery that produces distinctive, high-quality wines and ciders. In 1997, owner and managing director Paul Clark planted the first vines in a small block of land called Don’s Acre. Encouraged by the results, he began planting shiraz and riesling in Stag’s Leap Vineyard shortly thereafter. Now, Kersbrook Hill Wines & Cider cultivates an under-vine area that totals four hectares, with the land yielding fruit of the highest standard.
The winery specialises in a broad range of red, white, table, sparkling, fortified and dessert wines, including riesling, sauvignon blanc, shiraz, cabernet sauvignon, tempranillo, cabernet rosé and moscato. While Kersbrook Hill Wines & Cider produces fifteen different types of wine per year, it’s also renowned for its premium basket-pressed cider, which is made from fresh, locally grown apples.
The winery is constantly experimenting with new and different styles in order to create small-batch wines that capture the imagination and delight the senses, with most of these varieties only available at its cellar door.
In 2009, Paul and his wife Mary converted the town of Kersbrook’s disused fire station and cold store into the winery’s charming cellar door.
Showcasing scenic vistas of rolling hills and gum-studded valleys, the cellar door is designed to provide visitors with a tranquil environment in which they can enjoy sensory glass of wine. Along with delicious wine and cider tastings, the cellar door also offers a range of gourmet pizzas, home-baked muffins and decadent desserts that are made by a local pâtissier, as well as cheese and charcuterie platters, which are made from seasonal and regional produce.
Offering private winery tours, barrel tastings, and regular live-music events, you are guaranteed an enjoyable and memorable experience at Kersbrook Hill Wines & Cider’s cellar door.
Kersbrook Hill Wines & Cider’s award-winning wines can be found in restaurants and bottle shops throughout South Australia, and in selected venues in Melbourne and Sydney. The winery also exports its products to a number of international markets.
⇐ 2014 Kersbrook Hill Shiraz
Made using high-quality fruit from Stag’s Leap Vineyard, this wine is rich and complex. Exhibiting a bouquet of black-fruit berries, spice and a dash of bitter dark chocolate, this shiraz has a long and earthy finish, with the slightest hint of cedar oak.
⇐ 2015 Kersbrook Hill Strange Bedfellows
The Spanish and the French have been at loggerheads for centuries, so who would have thought these strange bedfellows would make such a delightful pairing? A decadent blend of tempranillo and cabernet sauvignon, this wine displays flavours of red fruits with a long, spicy finish. Fine tannins complement the strong, fruity aroma.
⇐ Kersbrook Hill Premium Cabernet Sauvignon Cuvée
Made entirely from basket-pressed cabernet sauvignon grapes that were fermented in French oak barrels, this wine is complex, with rich aromas of berry fruits and strong raspberry flavours. Crimson red in colour and creamy in the mouth, this cabernet sauvignon is sure to impress.
⇐ Kersbrook Hill Premium Single Vintage Cuvée
This sparkling wine is a blend of sixty percent chardonnay and forty percent pinot meunier, and has notes of crunchy Granny Smith apples on the nose. The grapes were basket-pressed and had extended ageing on lees to enhance the wine’s complexity and produce aromas of nougat and almonds.
