Established just eleven years after the founding of South Australia, the ancient vines in the Hundred Of Moorooroo were planted circa 1836 by the Jacob brothers, after accompanying Colonel William Light on the Seven Special Surveys expedition to populate Adelaide's north. Moorooroo endures as the nation's cardinal parcel of vine, the mother rootstock for many of the Barossa's most distinguished sites. 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 complete annihilation.

Pertaringa is surrounded by magnificent stands of native gum trees. All vines are pruned to control vigor and crop levels using a combination of regimens. In the summer the vines are topped and trimmed cutting the shoot tips off to encourage lateral growth and make the vines easier to access. Ironically, Pertaringa's Shiraz was initially sold off to Hardy Wines, proprietor Geoff Hardy's family company, to make port and to exchange for other wines as payment. Today Pertaringa's old Shiraz vines make the finest full bodied reds of the region and are highly sought by leading companies for their flagship wines. The most superior parcels of estate fruit are set aside for the Pertaringa label.
Deep plum ruby colour. Exuberant fragrances, aromas of dark cherries and blackberry. A complex array of lifted fruit flavours, an inky concentration, the palate delivers waves of vibrant satsuma plum, black cherries and beetroot that interplay with freshly laid asphalt and earth. In archetypal McLaren Vale style, silky, lively mouthfeel, framed by savoury elements. Fine grain French oak tannins keep the wine on course to deliver a persistent finish.
