Chateau Reynella Basket Pressed Shiraz 2014
McLaren Vale
Chateau Reynella is the birthplace of McLaren Vale Shiraz, today it is headquarters of Australia's most eminent winemaker. The original site, established by John Reynell in 1838, was the first commercial vineyard in South Australia. It remains productive to this day, yielding fruit which is processed at the original wineworks. The most exceptional parcels available to the Hardy winemaking team, those which can best represent the Chateau Reynella style, are vinified and assembled into a rich bold Shiraz of profound intensity, exquisite balance and refined silky tannins.

McLaren Vale is inextricably linked to names such as John McLaren, John Reynell and Thomas Hardy. The site which was destined to become South Australia's first winemaking estate was planted to vines just south of the Onkaparinga River, at the northwest corner of Panalatinga and Reynell Roads. Within ten years, John Reynell became the first to export South Australian red wine. His business grew, as Chateau Reynella was enjoyed around Australia and throughout the Empire. As his operations flourished and local businesses started up, more workers were attracted to the area and settled in, the beginnings of McLaren Vale. Significantly, one of Reynell's star employees was Thomas Hardy, founder of Hardy Wines.
 
Deep magenta colour. A complex array of primary fruit aromas, brambles and plum, chocolates and dried herbs, seasoned by scents of spicy, lifted oak. The palate is dense and creamy, blueberries and spiced plum intermingle with festive pudding and chocolate oak, texture and sweetness build structure, supported by ripe, mouth coating tannins. An experience in McLaren Vale Shiraz delivering tremendous satisfaction.

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

The site which was destined to become South Australia's first winemaking estate was established by John Reynell in 1838, the first family to grow wine grapes commercially in South Australia, releasing the first vintage in 1842. Reynell planted his vines south of the Onkaparinga River, at the northwest corner of the Panalatinga and Reynell Roads. This original site is still productive yielding grapes that are still processed at the original wineworks to this day. Much of Reynell's property was later broken up to form the township which bares his name.

Within ten years, Reynell became the first to export South Australian red wine. His business grew as Chateau Reynella was enjoyed around Australia and throughout the Empire. As his operations flourished and local businesses started up, more workers were attracted to the area and settled in, the beginnings of McLaren Vale. One of Reynell's employees was Thomas Hardy, founder of Hardy Wines, who moved on to establish his own business, and eventually appropriated the Reynell operations.

In 1982 Thomas Hardy and Sons, an established South Australian winemaking family, purchased the winery, upgrading the facilities and restoring the property to reflect its historic past. The company was family owned until 1992, when it merged with Berri Renmano Limited, a successful South Australian wine co-operative to become BRL Hardy. BRL Hardy enjoyed outstanding success in growing the market for Australian wine in world markets.

In 2003 Constellation Brands acquired Hardys and merged it with its own highly successful wine, beer and spirits business - a move that created the world's largest international wine business. They maintained the heritage of the Hardy name and the Australian business was renamed Hardy Wine. Today, the historic Reynell winery is headquarters of Hardys Wines, and set on twenty one picturesque hectares at the gateway to the famous McLaren Vale wine region.

The Reynell wineworks exude classic charm with their restored architecture. In keeping with John Reynell’s spirit, Hardy's drew inspiration from the estate's long heritage and made a decision to utilize the old basket presses and wax lined, open concrete fermenting tanks for the red wines, and to maintain a traditional, elegant style for the whites. Chateau Reynella are completely crafted to traditionalist vinification techniques, a tribute to the winery's founders. The premium McLaren Vale wines regularly receive international critical acclaim. Chateau Reynella was named Top 25 Wines in the World by Wine Spectator and continues to collect trophies around the Australian Wine Show circuit.
