Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer.

Winemaker's Notes

The fruit for the Tintara Shiraz, is sourced from premium vineyards of McLaren Vale and is destemmed prior to fermentation, which takes place in small open fermenters. The ferments are tasted twice daily where extraction of colour, flavour and tannins are carefully monitored to achieve a wine of balance, texture and vibrant fruit intensity. Traditional basket presses are used to ensure gentle extraction of tannins. The wine is settled for 24 hours prior to been aged in French and American oak barriques. Each individual vineyard parcel is kept separate prior to blending and bottling for maximum control over the final blend. The resultant wine is a Shiraz bold in style with a wonderful intensity of fruit and silky fine tannins.

The wine presents a complex nose where the aromas of ripe forest fruits computed merge with rich overtones of dark chocolate and gingerbread spice. The wine is plush, juicy and mouth filling, showing concentrated flavours of dark red fruits, plum and cocoa. Sweet vanilla notes along with savoury spice and cedar accompany the fruit contingent, all carried on a balanced structure of fine grained, juicy tannins to give a palate of rich and even persistence.

Critical Acclaim

"Good colour; an expressive regional bouquet and a medium- to full-bodied palate, black fruits, dark chocolate and mocha oak all in balance; good length. "
