The Genders family winery and McLaren Park vineyard are near the centre of the McLaren Vale township. The family have been here for over 60 years since Keith Genders purchased the vineyard in 1948.
Diana Genders now does all the vineyard work except the pruning. Having hand grown the grapes she then vinifies the fruit in the true artisan way, largely unaided in the winery on-site.
Each wine she produces is the result of an individual assessment of what the fruit of each different vintage offers, and how she can best use and capture its particular flavour profile. Having grown up on this vineyard she can compare its attributes with those she has experienced in many Australian and overseas winemaking regions. She strives for deft and minimal handling of the fruit and base blends, to create single site wines for individuality and unique flavour.
She releases only mature wines following prolonged storage in the air-conditioned warehouse, and the wines will comfortably cellar from 5 to 15 years
