Mt Jagged Wines is situated at the highest point on the Victor Harbor Road, only 20 minutes from McLaren Vale and Victor Harbor.
Established in 1989, Tod and Suzanne Warmer acquired Mt Jagged Wines in 2013 after a major lifestyle sea change. With their hands on approach they can be found at the cellar door and in the vineyard providing visitors with their personal insights in vineyard life and where their wines come from.
The cellar door is surrounded by panoramic lookout views of the vineyard flowing down the hillside with lake Alexandrina gleaming over the hilltops, the Coorong and it’s sand-hills and a large sweep of the Southern Ocean.
At 320 metres above sea level, Mt Jagged is located in a cool climate growing region being significantly influenced by the maritime forces of the Southern Ocean pushing up cooling breezes during summer which results in greater humidity and moderate temperate fluctuations. Temperatures can be up to 10 degrees different than those experienced in McLaren Vale and Adelaide during summer months. Climatic conditions along with good annual rainfall provides for longer ripening periods, creating wines of deep complexity and real varietal characteristics.
The vineyard was planted to red varieties of Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot with Pinot Noir being grafted to vines in 2013 by the new owners and white varieties Semillon and Chardonnay. The vineyard rows are planted in an East West orientation rather than the usual North / South direction due to the prevailing West South West winds. The planting arrangement causes the least amount of damage in the vineyard from winds while also acting as drying agent after rainfall, helping to prevent disease.
