The Curtis family has been growing grapes and making wine, in McLaren Vale since 1973. Mark, Thomas and Jenna Curtis run the business with help from their father, Claudio. They make old fashion, bold McLaren Vale reds. The 'Martins Vineyard' is just a baby. Bitter chocolate mingles with boysenberry and vanilla pod. Let is breathe for a while and watch it open up.

Here are a couple of reviews for the 2018 release 'Martins Vineyard' 

  • 97pts Sam Kim "Offering lavish opulence with seductive sophistication, the wine shows black/blueberry, perfumed dark spice, cedar and game characters on the nose. It’s immensely powerful and concentrated, displaying outstanding depth and multi-layered mouthfeel, wonderfully enhanced by plush texture and perfectly pitched polished tannins. At its best: now to 2038."
  • 94pts James Halliday(Ned Goodwin MW) "A long cold soak of 20 days then pressed to new French oak for fermentation and 18–24 months' maturation. A beautifully composed wine that transported me to another realm, following this producer's American-oak-singed cuvées. Another powerful wine, to be sure, but the relief of whole-berry pulpiness meshed with skilfully gleaned tannins provides joy. Bergamot, violet, dark cherry and the cedar scents of the oak cladding all find confluence, while driving long across the palate. This will age well. Rest assured. PRICE: $150
