Gilligan is a small, family owned vineyard and winery with a passion for sustainable viticultural practices and traditional winemaking techniques. Estate grown fruit, open fermentation, basket pressing and oak maturation produces a superb blend of Shiraz, Grenache and Mourvedre which has earned high praise since the first release in 2002, from wine critics and consumers throughout the world. It is located in the foothills of Mclaren Vale, region entrenched with history of fine wine and food. The flats of the McLaren Vale are compared often with the Mediterranean climate, warm sunny days with fresh sea breezes from the nearby Gulf of St Vincent to temper high summer heats. Its proximity to the Mount Lofty Ranges sees the cool gully winds fall down from the hills in the late evening and early morning, chilling the grapes to retain crisp acidity and structure. Good winter rainfall (580-700mm) and low relative humidity ensure consistency of ripening and premium quality fruit. Frost is rare, as is rain before vintage. Long dry summers through to late autumn, with a mean January temperature of 21.7ÂºC and 1920 heat degree days, means McLaren Vale is considered one of the safest wine growing regions in Australia.
