JAMES HALLIDAY

95 Points

This is in best Snake + Herring style, a very different proposition to its The Distance Karridale sibling; it is medium-boned, and secure in its elegant clothing, with cassis and superfine tannins taking it in turns to push their claims to be heard, although no more than that.

Winery Tasting Notes

APPEARANCE

Deep purple rim with an opaque heart. Bright and youthful.

AROMA

Very focused and intense bright lifted silky fruit: blackberry, some raspberry, redcurrant with underlying leaf and riverstone.

PALATE

Great purity and distinction. Powerful intense red and black fruits; classy, polished and layered with that Cabernet purity again. The Merlot adds flesh to the ample finely knit chamois tannins which are ripe and richly layered. There is some smoky oak in support and the linear palate has fantastic length. A wine for aging.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Snake and Herring was founded in 2011 by two wine industry junkies, Redmond “Herring” Sweeny and Tony “Snake” Davis. Compelled to walk away from their professional roles at the same time, Redmond and Tony decided to embark on a journey to create their own wine label. Over a parcel of epic Porongurup Riesling, an idea began to form. Many late-night texts were exchanged and early morning vineyard rendezvous arranged and before long Snake + Herring was created and a Porongurup Riesling born.

Like a good wine, Redmond and Tony are a well-balanced team. Tony tends to be dreamy, geeky, moved by the magnificence of science in wine. Capturing and bottling the best of fruit from each site and vintage really ignites him. Redmond has an agricultural and accounting background as well as a forklift driver's ticket and he's not afraid to use it. He knows the market, he knows how to sell wine and thankfully he has a cracking palate.

This partnership has seen Snake + Herring achieve great success, with their latest triumph being the opening of Yarri Restaurant + Bar Dunsborough with Sal Davis and awarded chef Aaron Carr at the helm.

The journey continues!
