Summerfield is a small family winery run by Ian Summerfield, who’s responsible for much of the viticulture, and his son Mark who is in charge of the winemaking. It was in the 1960’s when farming was on a downturn that the Summerfield family made the decision to sell a section of the property to Walter Henning who proceeded to plant it to vines, which today are the original plantings of Taltarni.
Ian Summerfield drew inspiration from his neighbour’s endeavours and amidst challenging times for the farming industry, planting grapevines seemed a viable alternative to the other crops Ian and his family had previously produced, and so in the early 1970’s he proceeded to plant 10 acres of predominantly Shiraz vines. Early crops were sold to Great Western (now Seppelts) and Chateau Remy (now Blue Pyrenees), however, as Ian’s knowledge in wine production and confidence in the future of the industry grew he made the decision to build a winery and employ industry legend Leo Hurley as winemaker, who had 50 years experience as a winemaker at Seppelts. However, it was Ian's decision to appoint McLaren Vale rising star, Drew Noon, as consultant winemaker that changed the style and character of Summerfield wines forever, forging it a reputation as one of the Pyrenees districts top Shiraz producers.
Matured for 18 months in American oak. 2010 was a very strong vintage in the Pyrenees with near perfect weather conditions producing exceptional fruit quality. Opaque black dark red colour with deep dark red hue. The nose displays aromas of ripe blackberry, dark plum and liquorice followed by a touch of vanilla and some spicy end notes.
