Winery Tasting Notes

Notes Image

Colour

The appearance is mid to deep red with lively cherry hues and solid core of deep garnet red. It’s just starting to show some mahogany tones of cellar aging.

Aroma

The nose is full of vibrant fresh plum, currant and cranberry with varietal spice and fragrant lavender overtones. Shiraz adds a hint of eucalypt and Mataro is sweet and rich with earthy spices delivering complexity and sophistication.

Palate

The palate is full and generous with raspberry and rhubarb adding to the fruit spectrum. The mid palate is solid and round with fleshy Shiraz tannins that add a savoury kick followed by earthy dried herbs. The intensity of flavour builds towards a dry, rounded finish with sweet oak and spice.

Food Matching

This is a wine for tender, slow cooked meats like lamb shank, Osso Bucco or beef gently roasted in a spicy marinade of olive oil, star anise, pepper and lashings of garlic. When the meat is falling off the bone it’s ready for the complex flavours of this traditional blend.

Cellaring Potential

This is an outstanding example of this traditional blend and will reward careful cellaring for 5 or more years.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Hope Estate wines express the deep individuality of our land and vines. All our wines are estate grown, we never dilute our character with other people’s fruit. So we bring you uniquely regional styles of wine.

The finesse and elegance that comes from the red Hunter soil. The European-style subtlety of our Victorian vineyards. And the length and concentrated fruit that only Western Australian maritime climate vineyards can create.

The Hunter has our largest vineyards, focused on the varieties that the region does best: Shiraz, Semillon, Chardonnay and Verdelho.

Our Kyneton vineyards produce intense flavours from low-yield vines. Its most famous product is Virgin Hills, a wine of remarkable Old World finesse that James Halliday nominated as his ‘desert island wine’.

Our Donnybrook vineyard in WA is best known for The Ripper and The Cracker, two vivid fruit-driven reds that are among our most popular wines.

Hope Estate wines are sought-after overseas, with much of our product taken by discerning US and UK buyers.

You can experience Hope Estate’s wines at our cellar door 7 days a week. We’re just re-working our web site right now, so the web store will be off-line for a few weeks. If you’d like to place an order, download the form here Order Form – Feb 2016 and email or fax. Cheers!
