Expert Reviews

93 Points. Mike Bennie. 10 November 2016

From a McLaren Vale block of Grenache planted in the 1930s. It faces north, as the name suggests. Call me Captain Obvious.

It’s a sweet style of grenache but it has plenty of dry tannin too. You try to pigeon-hole it but then have to pull back and reconsider. Sure, come in, we’re open. Actually, no we’re not. Spice, anise, orange peel, a woosh of redcurrant. It’s almost kirsch-like. Grenache as a heavy hitter, but done well “within its style”.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Old Faithful Estate is rated a 4 Star Winery by James Halliday.

McLaren Vale is home to some of the most treasured Old Vine plantings in the world today, with the earliest known plantings dating back to 1862. We affectionately refer to them as “The Old Faithful”. They are a resource we treasure dearly.

These wines show the deepest respect for a cluster of specific vineyard sites in McLaren Vale, each of them famous for consistently producing outstanding fruit from old vines. Since the Old Faithful wine brand was established in 2005, winemaker Nick Haselgrove has been fussy in producing these wines with maximum care and minimum interference, from the vine to the bottle. Accordingly, Old Faithful’s small range of shiraz, grenache and mourvedre wines capture the purest expression of their vineyard sites. Not all wines are made in all years – only when quality demands it and the winemaker is satisfied that the benchmarks of Old Faithful’s formidable reputation can be attained.
