Wine Tasting at Simon Tolley

Simon Tolley Wines, nestled in the Adelaide Hills, stands as a testament to a family legacy of grape growing that spans five generations. Simon Tolley, a viticulturist with a rich heritage and a Bachelor of Applied Science in Viticultural Science, has infused his deep understanding of vine management and winemaking into creating wines that embody the essence of the Adelaide Hills. Emphasising the importance of vineyard location, clone selection, and a minimal intervention approach, Simon crafts wines that are not only a reflection of the region's unique climate but also his family's enduring connection to the land. Varietals such as Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Syrah, Sauvignon Blanc, and Pinot Noir Rosé are carefully nurtured to express purity of flavour, complexity, and a true sense of place.

Simon's expertise in selecting the right clones for his wines ensures that each varietal demonstrates its characteristic aromatic and flavour profiles, contributing to the production of outstanding fine wines. The cool climate of the Adelaide Hills, characterised by long, slow-ripening days and chilly nights, provides the perfect conditions for growing grapes that yield distinctive, long-lived wines. Through careful vineyard management and a dedication to showcasing the region's terroir, Simon Tolley Wines captures the harmony and richness of the Adelaide Hills in every bottle.
