At Anvers, quality is more than paramount – it is everything!
Anvers grapes are sourced from low-yielding vineyards in the world-renowned regions of Adelaide Hills and Langhorne Creek. Anvers Estate Vineyard and Cellar Door is nestled near Kangarilla in the Adelaide Hills where 16 hectares is planted with Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Viognier.
Grapes sourced from these regions lead to the creation of wines displaying fruit flavours with a tantalising elegance and softness. These qualities have become the hallmarks of Anvers Wines.
First-class grapes, traditional techniques and a staunch ‘quality not quantity’ mindset are the three main contributors that have led to Anvers remarkable success - from both critics and the public.
Anvers has excellent reviews both nationally and internationally. Our Cabernet Sauvignon received an impressive 90 points from revered wine critic "Robert Parker". In addition Anvers ‘The Warrior’ Shiraz won gold medals at the internationally prestigious Syrah du Monde in France and the Selections Mondiales des Vins in Canada.
Anvers fruit for the premium range is sourced from premium areas with an emphasis on low yields and a synergy between place and variety.
The wines are aged in oak to provide controlled maturation while allowing harmonious integration of aroma and flavour. The winery strives for an average of three years for its barrels. At Anvers there is a strong belief in adding subtlety by way of wood maturation, not oak domination.
There is a definite traditional approach at Anvers - tried and true methods, combined with the benefits of some modern techniques. Open fermenters are used with extended maturation.
Wayne and Myriam Keoghan established Anvers Wines in 1998 with the philosophy of producing only premium wines from low-yielding vineyards.
As the Vigneron of Anvers, Wayne Keoghan stands firm in the belief that grape varieties should only be sourced from their specialty regions, the locations in which they thrive. One sip of our wine will have anyone agreeing with this ideal wholeheartedly.
Anvers is the French name for the Belgian city of Antwerpen as it is called in Flemish or Antwerp as it is known in English. Anvers is the home town of Myriam Keoghan and also where Wayne and Myriam first met in 1983.
