Intro


Old Jarvie • McLaren Vale

There’s an unseen partner at work in our winemaking: the gulf that laps Adelaide’s coastline. Matthew Flinders named it after the First Earl of St Vincent, Admiral John Jervis, whom the British sailors nicknamed OLD JARVIE.

Just as OLD JARVIE was generous to those he considered worthy but swift to punish those who deserved it, the Gulf St Vincent’s cooling sea breezes reward our best efforts with the ideal conditions for a range of approachable, contemporary wines. But OLD JARVIE still never lets us forget who’s really in charge.

THE CHARITABLE

NERO D'AVOLA AGLIANICO ROSE
2016

When Old Jarvie learned a London orphanage for the children of sailors who’d died serving their country was penniless, THE CHARITABLE solicited funds from 50 officers at a dinner on his flagship, and donated the staggering sum of £1,000 himself.

6 PACK $180.00 • TASTING NOTES


THE SAVIOUR

TEMPRANILLO GARNACHA MONASTRELL
2016

Old Jarvie could be exceptionally kind: when he found a brave man on his flagship had accidentally lost the pay he’d been saving for years, THE SAVIOUR mustered the crew and presented him with £70 of his own money, saying, ‘But no more tears, mind’.

THE WIDOWMAKER

TANNAT PETIT VERDOT CABERNET SAUVIGNON
2014

Upon taking command of the Channel Fleet, Old Jarvie found new ways to keep his crews at sea for far longer periods of time, leading the lonely wife of one his captains to toast THE WIDOWMAKER thus: ‘May his next glass of wine choke the wretch’.

6 PACK  $180.00 • TASTING NOTES


THE EVEN HAND

GRENACHE SHIRAZ MATARO
2016

Rank offered no immunity from Old Jarvie’s ruthless discipline. An officer found guilty of plunder was degraded by THE EVEN HAND before the whole crew, had his head shaved, uniform stripped, a notice hung around his neck, and was sentenced to clean the ship’s head indefinitely.

6 PACK  $180.00 •  TASTING NOTES


THE ENFORCER

SHIRAZ MATARO MALBEC
2016

Old Jarvie had a ruthless streak: when one of his captains defended a mutinous sailor, THE ENFORCER surrounded his ship with the rest of the fleet and threatened to sink it. When the man was hanged, he pronounced, ‘Discipline is preserved, sir’.
