Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

In 1973, Dr. John Wilson set out with soil map and sampling auger in search of a plot for his vines. The chosen land was some of the grazing slopes east of Sevenhill, Clare Valley, where he established 10 acres of vineyard between 1974 and 1976. The locals were bemused by this venture and were firm but kind with their advice about the unsuitability of the area for grapes. To that same handful of locals the little valley was known as Polish Hill River, a quaint tribute to its early pioneers.

In 1980 the vineyard produced its first commercial wine and with that Shiraz-Cabernet, wine consumers were introduced to this hitherto unknown corner of Clare. By then no-one had any doubts about the ability of Polish Hill River to produce fine wine. The Wilson family has been content to expand its operation slowly and steadily and is unfazed that most who followed them now cultivate larger tracts.

In 2000 John was one of the handful of Clare winemakers who led the screwcap revolution. Whilst many were hedging their bets John decided to dedicate his entire production, reds and whites, to the screwcap closure in 2001 and never looked back.

The Wilson Vineyard wines are produced entirely from estate-grown fruit. More than half of the production is Riesling, a variety with which both the Wilson name and Polish Hill River have become synonymous. Other varieties include Zinfandel, Tempranillo, Gewurztraminer, Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. The Wilson Vineyard Rieslings are powerful wines that take more than five years in the bottle to show their best.

Every year since 1988 The Wilson Vineyard has commissioned a local artist to produce a piece to adorn the Polish Hill River Riesling label. The exterior artwork compliments the art within.

Cellar Condition

Provenance; “Place of origin; derivation”

  • The history of the ownership of an object, especially when documented or authenticated. Used for Artworks, Antiques, and Wine.
  • The records or documents authenticating such an object or the history of its ownership.

Whenever you buy wine there is an inherent risk, as wine is a perishable good regardless of whether it is sealed under cork or screwcap. At GraysOnline we minimise the risk to you by providing as much information as possible regarding the provenance of the wine we sell.

We take the time to individually inspect each bottle and photograph it so you know exactly what you are buying. All Private Cellar wine stored at GraysOnline is kept in a temperature controlled wine storage area. Any wine that doesn’t meet our quality standards will not be sold.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Wines displaying a 5 star designation are recognised as being of proven quality provenance, our team has verified that the wine has been stored correctly from original purchase straight from the winery, documentation, where possible, has been sighted and cellaring conditions have been inspected. This wine generally comes from only the best and most respected of wine collectors in Australia.

★ ★ ★ ★

Wines displaying a 4 star designation have been cellared correctly as verified by the current owners. In general these wines have been purchased from retailers or traders and stored in cellared conditions from original purchase.

★ ★ ★

Wines displaying a 3 star designation are in good condition when we inspect and we are able to confirm some cellaring conditions but we are unable to verify all ownership and storage conditions of their history.

A wine displaying no stars doesn’t mean that there is a problem with the wine, it simply means that we have been unable to verify provenance, however a quality image is always available for the purchaser to make their own purchasing decisions.

Private Cellar wine is wine which has been stored for aging purposes in a Private Cellar.

Storing the wine and allowing it to age has the potential to improve the quality of the wine. While wine is perishable and capable of deteriorating, storing the wine can alter the aroma, colour, mouthfeel and taste of the wine in a way that may be more pleasing to the taster.
