Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Crimson red with purple hues.

Aroma

Earthy with hints of black pepper and blackberry.

Palate

An inky front palate leads into a dense core of coffee and licorice with dark berries. A voluptuous tannin structure frames the wine nicely with lingering notes of cinnamon and dark chocolate.

Food Matching

Open one hour prior and serve at room temperature. Foundation Shiraz is the ideal accompaniment to full flavoured dishes such as braised confit of Faison.

Cellaring Potential

This wine has superb ageing potential if carefully cellared.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Tatachilla has been a part of McLaren Vale since vines were first planted over 100 years ago. Today the bright patchwork of olive groves, avocado orchards and rows of vines bordered by the South Australian coast impart a Mediterranean flavour to this evolving region.

Established in 1903, Tatachilla’s commitment to McLaren Vale has remained strong throughout the years. Its vineyards are scattered amongst the sloping hills and tapered basin of McLaren Vale, with fruit for Tatachilla’s wines sourced from key McLaren Vale subregions: Blewitt Springs, McLaren Vale North & South and Clarendon.

Tatachilla’s own Clarendon Vineyard is the heart of Tatachilla, and the basis for our finest expressions of McLaren Vale wine.

Tatachilla’s wines evoke classic McLaren Vale characteristics blended with contemporary Mediterranean cues. The wines reflect the true character of the grapes, balancing a healthy respect for the vineyard with a light touch in the winery.
