South Australia's founding winery, the headquarters of Hardy Wines, Chateau Reynella is one of our nation's oldest cellars. Vinified from the most precious parcels of Cabernet Sauvignon available to Hardy, traditionally crafted to old world techniques, employing antique basket presses and open fermenters to keep the history alive and create wines which merit perennial critical acclaim. A highly perfumed construct of McLaren Vale Cabernet, its judicious measure of spiced French vanilla oak complements the fruit richness and lingers on the memorable finish.
Established by John Reynell in 1838, the winery boasts a prestige as birthplace of South Australia's wine industry. Set on twenty one picturesque hectares at the very gateway to McLaren Vale, this historic winery exudes classic charm with its restored heritage. The finest harvests of Cabernet are harvested and destemmed, crushed into a mix four and seven tonne open fermenters for ten days vinification, treated to a regimen of regular hand plunging and pumping of juices over skins to gently extract colour, flavour and tannin. Upon completion, the skins are basket pressed and batches are racked into a selection of seasoned and new fine oak barriques for a course of malolactic and extended term of maturation.
TASTING NOTES
Vibrant dark purple with brilliant crimson hues. Lifted plum, ripe cherry with underlying aniseed and cigar box aromas, along with complex notes of cassis, black olive and violets. The palate is powerful and textured, providing layers of cassis, plum and hints of mocha chocolate. Fine tannins complement the fruit flavour, whilst the acid structure provides a wine of great length and complexity.

McLaren Vale is invariably linked to names such as John McLaren, John Reynell and Thomas Hardy. McLaren was appointed as Senior Surveyor and given the task of surveying the southern districts of Adelaide. His report on the rich and extensive valley of McLaren Vale was completed three years after proclamation in 1839. His team came across a wide valley that members of the party named McLaren's Vale. "This wide valley of McLaren gave promise of much beauty and fertility!" Chateau Reynella»
