The Best Platter in McLaren Vale

Our wines are made to complement food; wines made for eating. Well-structured wines, with attractive savoury fruit flavours and balanced tannins and acid make them perfect to enjoy our cellar door platters. Take the time to relax with a glass of your favourite H&L wine and a platter with seasonal fresh fruits, cheeses, dips, and meats. These generous platters are designed as a casual shared plate; an easy lunch for two. You can read more here in this article, ‘Where are SA’s Best Platters’.
