Winemaker's Notes

The McLaren Vale region is strongly maritime influenced, with considerable variation in climate between the hill slopes and the sea. The hills produce favorable seasonal rains while the coast brings ripening sunshine softened by cooling breezes.

Tintara fruit is 100% McLaren Vale and includes only the absolute best lots from both estate-owned and contracted vineyards. The vineyards are up to 70-years-old and provide the dense character and powerful dark fruit aromas found in the Tintara wines.

This wine is big, ripe and juicy with bold dark fruits, blueberries, spice and cedar, with nicely integrated fruit, oak and tannins, giving way to a delicious and full bodied finish.

"Plump, generous and beautifully supple, glowing with plum, blueberry and sweet spice aromas and flavors, with a touch of earth on the ever-so-slightly gamy finish. Spicy oak frames the long aftertaste. Best from 2007 through 2015."
