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.

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.
