Gary and Nick Farr are father and son, they make wine together but aren't afraid to go head to head when their opinions differ. Nick grew up amongst some of the world's most sacred vineyards, he knows about the land and found a magnificent little site, barely east of Lake Colac. Irrewarra is the vigneron's shangri-la, prepared for viticulture by generations of grazing and eons of the sobering south sea breezes, which stimulate vines to yield meagre harvests of parched little grapes, sleek of tannin and rich in flavour. Vintaged in excruciatingly limited lots, there are fully two styles of Irrewarra on offer, a grapefruit and oyster shell Chardonnay, a Pinot Noir of pasture and of place, both finished to delight the senses and to excite the most inscrutable palates... It's irrewarra by farr»
Graeme Melton and a mate were travelling across South Australia in 1973, their EH Holden was in dire need of maintenance and Graeme took up casual work at a passing winery. The site supervisor was Peter Lehmann and young Graeme had his epiphany on the road to Barossa Valley. Lehmann suggested that Graeme change his name to Charlie and take the pilgrimmage to Vallee Rhone. Charlie became prepossessed with the culture of old vines Grenache, Shiraz and Mourverdre. He returned to the Barossa, at a time when old vineyard fruit was made into flagon Port and growers were destroying their historic sites in return for government grants. Charlie emabarked on a crusade to conserve and restore the ancient vines, establishing his cellars at Tanunda along Krondorf Road. He has since retained the most precious parcels, once destined for the logger's axe, they are now the genesis of fruit for the distinguished Barossa brand known as Charles..

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.
