Winemaker's Notes

Tintara fruit is 100% McLaren Vale and includes only the best lots from both estate-owned and contracted vineyards. The 70-year-old vineyards provide the dense character and powerful dark fruit aromas. The 2006 vintage is full-bodied and fragrant, with sweet fruit flavors of black currant and plums. Aromas of ripe, dark berry fruits merge with rich overtones of dark chocolate and gingerbread spice. Plush, mouth filling flavors of dark forest fruits, plum and cocoa carried on a balanced structure of fine, juicy tannins that create a rich, persistent finish.

Critical Acclaim

"Dense crimson; a wine which manages to retain elegance even though it is full of plum, blackberry and dark chocolate fruit; the texture is silky, the oak integrated, the tannins fine."

less jammy and syrupy than most Australian Shiraz; balanced fruit, acid and tannins; an intro level wine that is both complex and elegant.
