The new faces behind the Curtis Family Vineyards are Mark, Thomas & Jenna Curtis, with the guidance of their father, Claudio Curtis who lives on the vineyard just outside McLaren Vale. The name Curtis is thought to derive from Curtius, a noble and wealthy family of the First and Second Centuries AD, the Roman Empire era originating from the Latinium people.
A thoroughly intimidating wine, built in heroic style. The fruit is dialled up to maximum, tannins and oak draped over its full body. It's a legitimate style, abounding with fresh fruits from its 100yo vines. As long as the Diam closure works, the wine will live.

Classic perfumed aromas of raspberry, dark plum, mocha and roasted hazelnut lead to a concentrated palate that is lush and beautifully flowing. The palate delivers wonderful weight and roundness, superbly complemented by silky texture and supple tannins. Gorgeously expressed and hugely appealing. At its best: now to 2026.
