Tintilla Estate Wines is located in Pokolbin in the heart of the Lower Hunter Valley wine region of New South Wales.

Good wine always starts with good grapes that reflect the natural balance between the land, the climate and the vines. At Tintilla, the aim is to deliver high quality fruit and make wine with minimal interference so that as much of the Hunter character is preserved. Winemaker James Lusby and his father Robert are passionate about the unique styles of wine that come from the Hunter terroir and seek to deliver true regional varietal wines.

Their wines include classic Hunter semillon, the Angus, grown on the creek bed soils, a soft and
flavoursome long lasting traditional Hunter shiraz and a highly rated Justine Merlot from the clay on limestone soils.

Tintilla have pioneered sangiovese in the Hunter, a well matched climate, producing a Rosato di Jupiter, a straight Saphira Sangiovese as well as the Catherine de'M blend, a marriage of sangiovese and merlot.

Pinot noir and chardonnay cuttings originally came to the Hunter direct from Clos du Vougeot vineyard in Burgundy in the 1830's. At Tintilla's winery they make a chardonnay and the Four Mary's Pinot Noir, both grapes taken off a heavily limestone laden block two kilometres down the road. As a result they exhibit great varietal character.
