Winery Tasting Notes

Aroma

A bouquet of appealing ripe, plump dark fruits, tempered by regional character of dark chocolate and brown spices. Balanced notes of toast, vanilla and cedar from oak maturation support the generous fruit character.

Palate

Wine Background

In taming the rugged, steep slopes of his McLaren Vale property Tintara in 1862, founder Dr Alexander Kelly was presented with quite a challenge in planting his vineyard. A pioneer in viticulture, Dr Kelly chose to work with the terrain, planting each vine to match the contours of the land, in terraced vineyard rows. Such were the curves of these vineyards, they became known as 'Horseshoe Rows'.
