Tasting Notes

Colour

The colour is dark cherry red with crimson hi-lights.

Aroma

The bouquet is full of dark berries and chocolate with hints of lavender from the Merlot giving a lift to the aroma. Cabernet delivers an herbaceous, gamey background with savoury olives and earthy spices.

Palate

On entry the palate is full of sweet red and black fruits which swell to give a full flavoured mid palate with herbal, vegetative flavours combined with typical cedar wood and toasty charred oak, vanilla and nutty spice. The tannins are solid with a fine grained texture leading a firm dry finish.

Food Matching

This wine is suited to a wide range dishes, it’s full bodied and dry making ideal for roast lamb with mint sauce or pasta with meatballs and chunky tomato sauce. Or enjoy it tapas style with smoked ham, olives and cheese.

Cellaring Potential

This wine has had over three years of cellar maturation before bottling and the flavours are well integrated and balanced. Further bottle aging will add to the smoky, earthy characters and will continue to deliver rewarding drinking for the next five years.

About Us

Originally established in 1988, our Hunter vineyards and winery are located overlooking the Hunter River at Luskintyre in Australia's oldest wine region.

Over many generations grape growers and winemakers have identified the crucial input of vineyard location in contributing to flavour development in their wine.

Our vision is to craft natural wines capturing the essence of their origin, that unique combination of soil, climate, rainfall and sunshine that produce individual characteristics of "regionality".

An Australian Family Owned Winery Since 1988.

Winemakers - Chris Hill

Chris Hill started making wine in 1981 in the Barossa Valley. For the last 3 decades he has worked with a number of great Aussie "wine legends" ... Len Evans, Grant Burge, Brian McGuigan, as well as some of today's talented stars across a wide spectrum of wine regions. Not so much a "flying winemaker", these days Chris considers himself more of a "driving winemaker". From his "Garage" in the McLaren Vale region he's within quick driving distance of the Adelaide Hills, Barossa Valley, Eden Valley, Langhorne Creek, Fleurieu Peninsula and Clare.  With a heritage of long friendships and solid working relationships, Chris has a unique connection with most of Australia's premier wine growing districts.

"I'm based in McLaren Vale, which is a wonderful region, but with friends and colleagues scattered throughout Australia's great viticultural landscape I've decided to concentrate on all the great wine districts rather than focus on just one."

Winemakers - Peter Jorgensen

In 1982 Peter was admitted to Charles Stuart University as an undergraduate student in Wine Sciences.  He is well versed in viticultural, winemaking and blending skills with many years practical winemaking and blending experience.

Between 1995 and 2004, he had received over 70 medals, awards and accolades including numerous trophies with almost all wines produced over this period receiving at least one award.  In recent years he no longer shows wine preferring his customers to be the judge.

Peter's greatest passion is still blending. As he frequently points out, "Blending is the crucial dynamic in the production of fine wine.
