Established in 1838, Reynella is the birthplace of South Australia’s internationally renowned wine industry and home to the state’s oldest operating cellar. John Reynell was one of South Australia’s earliest colonists. In 1838 he arrived from England aboard the Surrey and vintaged the first Reynella wine only four years later. Thus began a winemaking tradition that was to span three generations. Today, the historic Reynella winery is an impressive reminder of the family's pioneering spirit and wine.
Intense deep garnet in colour with a soft crimson red rim, the nose exhibits aromas of cassis and musk, ripe black plum flesh, camphor oil and black olive that are complemented by fine French oak and cinnamon spice. Fine primary fruits are mirrored on the palate with terrific drive and poise; tannins resonate in the backbone of this wine with a seductive mid weight carrying an impressively long driven wine.
