*95 points James Halliday
Tasting Notes: Deep red in colour. Dark cherry and blackcurrant are matched by spice, slight cabernet leafiness and subtle vanillin oak. This wine is all about structure; dark berry fruits support fine-grained tannin and healthy acid. These persistent elements will guarantee a good cellaring life.
Winemaking Notes: Harvest: Hand-picked 5th April
Vinification: Short cold soak, natural fermentation lasting 10 days before a 2 week extended maceration.
Elevage: 15 months in French oak barrels (30% new)
Viticultural Notes: Our Hill Road vineyard and winery is located at Coldstream, 40kms east of Melbourne in Victoria’s oldest grape growing region, the Yarra Valley. Grown on ancient, mountain derived sandy clay loams, these rocky soils combined with our thirty-year-old vines are at the heart of this wine. 2013 will be remembered for good winter rains, even flowering and fruit set with an early harvest due to dry and favourable conditions.
