Established by John Reynell in 1838, the Reynell winery enjoys the unrivalled prestige of the birthplace of South Australia’s internationally renowned wine industry, and is the proud home of the State’s oldest operating wine cellar.
An impresive wine beautifully matured in French barriques for 16 months to develop subtle spicy aromas.

Small open fermenters, hydraulic-plunged, basket-pressed, matured in French barriques for 16 months. The dense colour attests to the quality of the fruit and the intelligent winemaking (in a state of the art winery); it manages to combine richness with finesse, a gin-clear sense of place, and a lightness of foot aided by the controlled alcohol and superfine tannins.

Winery Tasting Notes
Deep rich hues of black purple.
A rich and sumptuous brooding style of McLaren Vale Shiraz, dark fruits, chocolate, hints of peat, mint and vanillin spice from the French oak.
A continuum of the bouquet, with a densely flavoured wine showing complex chocolate, ink, tar and black fruits, rustic firm tannins and influence of spicy oak.
