Region McLaren Vale

The McLaren Vale wine region is located between the Mount Lofty Ranges and the Gulf of St Vincent just South of Adelaide in South Australia. Historically it was John Reynell who established Chateau Reynella in 1838, and Thomas Hardy who purchased the historic Tintara in 1876, that kick started the development of the McLaren Vale wine industry. The climate is generally considered warm, although different aspects, altitude and the effect of the cooling ocean breezes moderate the climate within the different sub-regions of the Vale. A large number of soil types are present, although red-brown loams dominate. The biggest viticultural challenge is the potential for drought and the overall lack of water. Full bodied, robust and plush reds typify the McLaren Vale style. Plantings are dominated by Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Grenache, with smaller plantings of whites including Semillon, and Chardonnay. More recent plantings of Mediterranean varieties particularly suited to the climate, including Sangiovese, Tempranillo, Mourvedre, Savagnin and Fiano have also been very successful.

Winery TINTARA

Dr. Alexander Kelly was a pioneer of the McLaren Vale region as far back as 1861, where he set up the Tintara winery and vineyards in an inhospitable region. His success in McLaren Vale inspired Thomas Hardy (of Hardy’s ancestry) to purchase the winery and vineyards in 1876, realising the potential of the McLaren Vale region, and further purchasing land throughout McLaren Vale. Tintara has a reputation for full-bodied plush reds from Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon, long-lived and intense. They have also created a single vineyard range that represents the best expression of Shiraz from different sites in McLaren Vale.
