‘Capture the essence of a time and place by consistently striving to create the worlds most memorable and desired wines’
McLaren Vale III Associates is the coming together of three like-minded passion driven friends to create not only amazing wines, but also a memorable experience and service that resonates the McLaren Vale region. A family owned and operated winery the three associates is made up by Reg Wymond and Mary and John Greer, who along with their son and Winemaker Campbell Greer share 80 years of Industry experience.
We are proudly nestled in the heart of the stunning McLaren Vale wine region and we pride ourselves on delivering product consistency from our Estate owned vineyards with a vision to ‘Capture the essence of a time and place by consistently striving to create the worlds most memorable and desirable wines.’
Leading the brand is our ‘Squid Ink’ Shiraz range, which allows us to take our customers on a journey experiencing the Shiraz winemaking world, looking at four different styles.
So, why the name ‘Squid Ink’?
Attracted to McLaren Vale by great wine, great food and great people the stunning neighbouring ocean was the cementing reason to make this region home.
Beyond its natural beauty, the neighbouring ocean plays a crucial role in protecting the viticulture of the region, so it only seemed natural to name our flagship wine in honour of this blessing.
‘Squid Ink’ became the obvious fit when in 1999 after purchasing this purple patch vineyard, we came to realise the magnitude of fruit quality we had invested in, where its profound colour would be the first impression each person gets when they pour a glass.
So what else do we offer?
Well for those who know the region its no surprise that Shiraz is the predominant variety, however we do offer some other little hidden gems. Our GSM (Grenache/ Shiraz/ Mourvedre), varietal Grenache, a Merlot/ Cabernet/ Petit Verdot blend and a beautiful tropical fruit influenced Sauvignon Blanc.
