Winery Tasting Notes

Notes Image

Taste

Powerful, cherry, floral spices and tannin structure, but with an underlying depth of red cherry and raspberry fruit lifting as the wine breathes in the glass. A full bodied pinot noir with great personality.

Food Matching

The rich full-bodied wine goes well with chicken, pork, veal, duck, cured meat, French food, German food, cream sauces, soft cheeses, nutty medium-firm cheeses like Gruyère.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Some 20 years ago Grant Griffiths and his wife, Ciara, went to a friends property in Red Hill for lunch. Ciara immediately fell in love with the area as its geography & feel reminded her of where she had grown up in Ireland.  She would pour over the local papers whenever she could get them, hoping a property that would appeal to both her and Grant would come on the market. Five years later, a property called “Frog Hollow” was going to auction. With her husband overseas at the time her chance of buying this property looked dismal. However, as luck would have it the property got passed in and the next day when Grant arrived home they drove down to Main Ridge for a look.  It was a rainy, grey day but when they arrived onto the old rundown property all you could hear were the frogs croaking as the sky opened and the sun hit the dam!  It was an omen – Grant had always loved frogs and they just knew this was going to be their property.

Together they designed and built their dream home and Ciara’s request for half a dozen rows of vines to view from their kitchen, turned into a vineyard.  Their love of the Californian Reds and European whites inspired Grant to go further and employ a winemaker to emulate these wines rather than repeat the glut of Australian and New Zealand style wines.

With the establishment of Frog Hollow Vineyard their dream of a place for family and friends to come together and enjoy meals from local produce and their very own wines became complete.
