Tintara Shiraz 2007
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.
In 1878, the Tintara winery and its gravity flow techniques moved to the Old Mortlock Flour Mill in the heart of McLaren Vale, where it remains today. In fact, to this day they use the very same rare basket presses and original slate open fermenting tanks as used in the 19th century. Tintara is a rarity in every sense.
