Utilizing premium fruit from McLaren Vale, Padthaway, and Adelaide Hills in Southern Australia, The Chook struts affordable wines to be enjoyed and adored, shared and celebrated! Careful vineyard selection teamed with exceptional winemaking by Alexia Roberts and an emphasis on consistent varietal expression produces wines with approachability, generosity and character that really are something to cluck about.
“As we scratched around for a name for the first Shiraz/Viognier, an obviously interested black chook stopped in its unplanned tracks, lingering, as only chooks do, just long enough for the penny to drop. For its trouble, we immortalized that single Black Chook, rationalizing that it had come from a small white egg; just as our dark, inky, black Shiraz had been transformed by a tiny amount of fragrant white Viognier.”
Chook? It’s Australian for chicken.
