Expert Reviews

The flavours here are arguably riper/sweeter than a lot of folks would like to see, but when you look at the wine as a whole – it’s hard not to come down in its favour. The ripeness here shows in stewy/raisiny highlights, no doubt due to the season’s super hot conditions. It has a smooth curranty core too though and notes of both earth and dried herb; it walks and talks its variety. Rugged tannin appears without being overdone and its persistence is impressive. It’s possible, indeed, that I’m under-rating it. Rating 90+, Campbell Mattinson (29/Apr/2011)

From McLaren Vale, this shows blackcurrant and cassis on the nose and generous palate, with restrained oak and fine, persistent tannins on the finish." Rating 89 - Mike Frost, Courier Mail, (13/May/2011)

Smart wine considering the scorching vintage conditions experienced over the 2008 summer ripening period. Matured in first and second use French oak barrels, powerful, yet textured, cherry and fruitcake-like flavours, a hint of mint, chocolate characters, balanced oak and juicy tannins.Kerry Skinner, Illawarra Mercury (14/MAY/2011)

Winery Tasting Notes


Rub red.


Rich dark chocolate, juic cherry and blood plum with violet notes finished by an underling hint of spice and smoke aromas.


A succulent full bodied wine, ripe dark fruit and strawberry flavours with a soft vanilla bean ice-cream like texture. The wine has a menthol fresh texture with pleasantly rounded tannins and a long finish.

Food Matching

Open one hour prior and serve at room temperature. Superb with Char grilled beef, rich pastas and matured cheeses.

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.
