    Founded by Dr Alexander Kelly in 1861 and re-established by Thomas Hardy in 1876, Tintara is nestled at the very heart of McLaren Vale. The wines owe much to the past, but the appeal belongs exclusively to today. Throughout the traditional fermentation process, wines are tasted twice daily. Flavour development and tannins are carefully monitored to achieve a wine of texture and balance. Ferments are treated to an ancient basket press, ensuring gentle extraction of tannins, followed by twenty four hours settling and racking to a selection of seasoned oak barriques. The final wine is assembled from parcels which can best represent the timeless McLaren Vale Shiraz style.
    Deep red in colour with purple hues. Exhibiting warmth on the nose, Tintara exudes lifted aromas of red fruits and ripe blackcurrant coupled with spicy oak and tantalizing savoury hints of roast meats and beef jerky. Concentrated flavours of dark forest fruits, plum and cocoa complement the sweet vanilla oak, along with a mill of savoury spice and curly cedar notes, rich and bold with wonderful intensity of fruit over fine, silky tannins.
