For over a century, these sacred vines contributed fruit to the Orlando company, where they formed the backbone of countless spectacular historical vintages. Decimated by the government sponsored vine pull schemes of the 1980s, only four rows of these priceless vines were saved by master Ed Schild from.. The fruit of vines established 1836»

Hardys Tintara Cabernet Sauvignon CONFIRM VINTAGE

Cabernet Sauvignon McLaren Vale South Australia
The first Tintara vines were planted by Dr Alexander Kelly in 1862. Thomas Hardy recognised the potential that lay within the rich loamy soils of McLaren Vale and purchased the splendid property. Built against the rolling hills at the foot of Mount Lofty Ranges, the ancient Mortlock Flour Mill has been converted into the present day operating winery, its ingenious sloping design harnesses gravity in the winemaking, translating into a gentler handling of the juices. Tintara is a rarity in every sense, each sip remains a truly memorable experience.

Established 1861, Tintara is a significant part of McLaren Vale history, the region's stateliest founding winery. Nowhere is the long and rich history of the Southern Vales more evident than at Tintara, a testament to quality viniculture. Crafted to old-world techniques and new-world innovation, the ancient basket presses and original slate open fermenting tanks are still used today. Dedicated to the region, Tintara's winemakers source all of the grapes for Tintara exclusively from good vineyards in McLaren Vale, exactly as the founders had intended. When, and only when, tannin ripeness is optimal, the Cabernet is harvested, producing a wine with abundant fruit intensity and soft fine tannin structure.
Deep garnet with bright red rim. Intensely perfumed, showing strong varietal fruit of blackcurrant and cassis, a stalk or two of mint, lithely seasoned by spice and cocoa notes. Ripe, red berry fruits of forest, mulberry flavours, cassis and briar notes, a middle palate of richness and good structure, supported by elegant tannins and culminating on a long, persistent finish.
