Jason Slocombe from Langhorne Creek winery Matilda Plains, which last week crushed and fermented a tempranillo for McLaren Vale’s Chalk Hill Wines.

Local wine industry leaders believe the 2021 harvest will help the region “bounce back from a couple of tough years”.
The heads of the Langhorne Creek and Adelaide Hills wine region boards – Greg Follett and Jared Stringer – are both expecting improved grape yields and product quality as this year’s vintage gets underway in both districts.
