A very good vintage, with good rain during winter and throughout the growing season in McLaren Vale and all sub-regions. Yields were smaller than usual but the quality was outstanding, with large canopy size development allowing for flavour ripeness of fruit to occur rapidly, with low sugar levels.

The 2006 vintage had two distinct phases, February to March was characterised by warm and dry weather. During the other months, a wet Spring and much cooler temperatures helped retain highly prized freshness in the berries.

A blend of fruit sourced from mature vineyard sites from South Australian vineyards including premium Langhorne Creek sites.

After crushing, the grapes were carefully handled and fermented separately to preserve the flavours of Shiraz and the tannic intensity of Cabernet Sauvignon. The two varieties were then blended after some malo-lactic fermentation. Sealed with screwcap to ensure premium quality and retain the freshness of the wine.

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.
