- 5 RED STAR RATED WINERY JAMES HALLIDAY
A classic example of McLaren Vale Shiraz
displaying vibrant and expressive notes of
dark fruits, chocolate, violets and vanillin
On the palate, the wine is dense and
intense, showing ripe plum & dark berry
fruits in combination with chocolate,
liquorice and tar. The palate is framed by
persistent fine tannins that carry the flavour
and finishes with mouth-watering acidity. A
palate of balance & underlying power.
95 Point Rated - James Halliday Wine Companion
"From vines planted in '72, this is the very essence of McLaren Vale shiraz. The brilliant dark purple hue leads onto a mound of dark plums and red berries dipped in dark mint chocolate, warm earth, oak aromas and flavours also at play, yet they'll recede in time. Full-bodied with velvety tannins, the palate cruises along for quite some distance."
95 Point Rated - Huon Hooke The Real Review
"Deep, youthful red colour with a good tint of purple. The bouquet is spicy and herbal, deep and lush with hints of aniseed, the palate full-bodied and intense with a twist of licorice-like bitterness and a long, firm finish. A distinctive, superb shiraz. It will reward long-term cellaring."
93 Point Rated - Campbell Mattinson The Wine Front
"Fresh aromatics, boysenberried, slightly tarry-but-in-a-good way. Toast, Dutch chocolate, a spreading wealth of tannin. An imposing wine, with more than a little presence. For all its might and power the palate feels closed, even sulky. Leave it alone awhile. A good while. It’s not a lot of fun at present."

This 2015 is the inaugural release of the Hardys Tintara Yeenunga Shiraz single vineyard, a unique expression of McLaren vale Shiraz from an elevated site on the northern edge of the region. This old vine Shiraz is some of the best in the region, a very pure & perfumed example of McLaren Vale Shiraz. The vineyard sits high above the township of McLaren Vale, overlooking St Vincents gulf & the Onkaparinga Gorge. This site consistently produces Shiraz oozing with personality and is a true expression of its site. A cool & wet start to the growing season led to some variation across the district with bud burst & canopy growth. A warm springhowever moved things along and by early January it was clear that an early ripening year was upon us. Good to excellent vinecanopies & moderate yields led to rapid ripening and accumulation of flavour in Shiraz fruit. All McLaren Vale fruit was picked by the end of the 1st week of March. A rapid & fast paced vintage of small quantity, with very high quality.
