Vineyard

The fruit for the 2007 Grenache Is produced in only the best of years, this is the first Reserve Grenache since 2004. Sourced from a premium 89 year old vineyard in McLaren Vale, that grows in gravelly red loam and grey sandy loam soil.

Winemaking Notes

This wine is handcrafted, we hand harvest in selected vineyards before gently open vat fermenting for a period of 10 days, this allows for a gentle extraction of colour, flavour and tannin profile. The fruit is then traditionally basket pressed before setting in barrels for 24 hours and being filled to seasoned French oak puncheons and barriques where Malolactic fermentation was complete and a further period of time for maturation was carried out.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Tintara is a winery of two worlds. A living treasure house of tradition on one hand, a testimony to new age winemaking on the other.

The winery is set in McLaren Vale, a town on South Australia’s Fleurieu Peninsula. Nestled between the Gulf of St Vincent and the Mt Lofty Ranges. The result is distinctly Mediterranean.

Established in 1861, Tintara was a pioneer in taking McLaren wines to the world. Today Tintara’s winemaking acknowledges the past and is inspired, producing wines of great regional character and individuality.
