Expert Reviews

Showing expected development, the tarry black fruits and leathery characters are melded together by a generous, medium-bodied palate. Best enjoyed over the next five years.Rating 92 - Drink by 2017 - James Halliday Wine Companion 21 Feb 2012

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Deep red with ruby hues.

Aroma

Plum and blackberry with hints of nutmeg and dark chocolate notes.

Palate

Front palate is characterised by intense blueberry and coffee flavours and earthy tones, the middle palate is melded with intense but extremely smooth tannic structure. There are some underlying cinnamon and cocoa aromas, while the finish is spicy, intense and lingers in the mouth.

Food Matching

Open one hour prior and serve at room temperature. Foundation Shiraz is the ideal accompaniment to full flavoured dishes such as lamb shanks or roasted duck.

Cellaring Potential

This wine has superb ageing potential if carefully cellared (15 to 20 years)

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.
