Four generations of the Hackett family followed agricultural pursuits in South Australia. In 1860, Simon's great uncle attended the esteemed Roseworthy Agricultural College whilst Simon's father was a graduate in the inaugural Oenology Course at the college in 1938. Simon grew up in an atmosphere steeped in wine, spending his boyhood in the Barossa Valley alongside his father, who was General Manager and a Director of the giant Barossa Valley Distillery, Tarac International. The family home was situated next to the sprawling Saltram Winery outside Angaston.Given this environment, it was not surprising that Simon, at the age of eighteen, elected to follow a career in winemaking and joined the team at the neighbouring Saltram Winery.Serving his apprenticeship under the watchful eye of master winemaker, Peter Lehmann, Simon progressed through the 'Saltram ranks'. In 1970 he completed a vintage in the Hunter Valley Region of New South Wales, before returning to the Saltram Winery for another two years.In 1973 Simon decided to move to McLaren Vale thus his association with the region began and continues today. Simon's first vintage in McLaren Vale was at the Southern Vales Co-operative Winery, where he worked with the outstanding winemaking team of Grant Burge and Ian Wilson. After eight years he was appointed Senior Winemaker at Southern Vales Co-operative Winery, now known as Tatachilla Wines.In 1984, Simon decided to leave Southern Vales Winery and concentrate fully on establishing his own boutique winery situated in McLaren Vale.Once out on his own Simon re-established his links with the Barossa Valley and today crushes grapes grown in McLaren Vale, Barossa Valley and the Adelaide Hills regions of South Australia.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eBarossa Valley:Situated eighty kilometres north of Adelaide in the Barossa Valley, there are two vineyards from which Simon sources fruit. The Brightview vineyard is located in what is termed 'the valley floor' between the townships of Tanunda and Nuriootpa. This vineyard yields Semillon from two separate plantings. One plot was planted in the 1950's, the other from Semillon cuttings grafted onto Riesling root stock. Simon believes this root stock enhances the wine's citrus flavours. His Chardonnay is also grown on the Brightview vineyard.The second vineyard is situated near the township of Angaston. Here he is lucky to have a small vineyard which was planted to Shiraz vines in the 1890's. From these very low yielding but extremely high quality bearers comes a limited release single vineyard wine. In McLaren Vale he has four vineyard sites fifty kilometres south of Adelaide. The largest vineyard, just west of the township of Willunga, was planted in the early 1990's to Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon and Grenache vines. Further east, in the foothills of the Willunga Ranges and nestled between rolling hills and aged gum trees, is where he sources his Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz from vineyards planted in the mid 1980's.Closer to the township of McLaren Vale he takes Cabernet Sauvignon grapes from vines planted in the 1960's. Further east towards the hamlet of McLaren Flat he has Grenache vines planted in the 1950's. Nearby is the legendary Foggo Road vineyard planted in 1924. Only small quantities are harvested from the low yielding Cabernet Sauvignon vines. Situated fifty kilometres south east of Adelaide in the cool region of the Adelaide Hills Simon has established a ten acre property planted to Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz. This low yielding, cool climate vineyard is designed to grow high quality grapes.","published_at":"2020-09-22T11:59:28+01:00","created_at":"2020-05-11T11:14:21+01:00","vendor":"Christopher Piper Wines","type":"Australia White","tags":["Digital Goods VAT Tax","Half White"],"price":830,"price_min":830,"price_max":830,"available":true,"price_varies":false,"compare_at_price":null,"compare_at_price_min":0,"compare_at_price_max":0,"compare_at_price_varies":false,"variants":[{"id":32825386434648,"title":"Default Title","option1":"Default Title","option2":null,"option3":null,"sku":"","requires_shipping":true,"taxable":true,"featured_image":null,"available":true,"name":"Half Bottle: Hackett Chardonnay 2013","public_title":null,"options":["Default Title"],"price":830,"weight":1000,"compare_at_price":null,"inventory_management":"shopify","barcode":""}],"images":["\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0043\/0066\/9016\/products\/Hackett-Chardonnay.jpg?v=1589281281"],"featured_image":"\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0043\/0066\/9016\/products\/Hackett-Chardonnay.jpg?v=1589281281","options":["Title"],"media":[{"alt":null,"id":6921701621848,"position":1,"preview_image":{"aspect_ratio":1.0,"height":677,"width":677,"src":"https:\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0043\/0066\/9016\/products\/Hackett-Chardonnay.jpg?v=1589281281"},"aspect_ratio":1.0,"height":677,"media_type":"image","src":"https:\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0043\/0066\/9016\/products\/Hackett-Chardonnay.jpg?v=1589281281","width":677}],"content":"This Chardonnay has seen a very little oak maturation to ensure that the rich and natural buttery flavours of the fruit are able to shine through. \u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eThe larger-than-life, fun-loving and passionate Hackett is a boutique wine-maker in every sense of the word.

From these very low yielding but extremely high quality bearers comes a limited release single vineyard wine. In McLaren Vale he has four vineyard sites fifty kilometres south of Adelaide. The largest vineyard, just west of the township of Willunga, was planted in the early 1990's to Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon and Grenache vines. Further east, in the foothills of the Willunga Ranges and nestled between rolling hills and aged gum trees, is where he sources his Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz from vineyards planted in the mid 1980's.Closer to the township of McLaren Vale he takes Cabernet Sauvignon grapes from vines planted in the 1960's. Further east towards the hamlet of McLaren Flat he has Grenache vines planted in the 1950's. Nearby is the legendary Foggo Road vineyard planted in 1924. Only small quantities are harvested from the low yielding Cabernet Sauvignon vines. Situated fifty kilometres south east of Adelaide in the cool region of the Adelaide Hills Simon has established a ten acre property planted to Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz. This low yielding, cool climate vineyard is designed to grow high quality grapes."}

The wine sees no oak-ageing but does stay on its lees in the stainless steel vats over a 3-4 month period, adding a further dimension of complexity and a more exuberant fruitiness.
