A taut youthful package just waiting to explode on the palate with a profusion of blackcurrant, plums and licorice. Maturity gained through careful cellaring will spark the explosion.
Definitely one to put down. Fresh acidity and firm, fine tannins will ensure a long life. Alc./Vol. 14.7%.
Our red wines are fermented in small open vats, the musts are hand-plunged every four hours and at the end of primary fermentation, basket-pressed. The wines invariably spend 15-18 months maturing in oak barriques; they are traditionally fined and not filtered prior to bottling. Strict hygiene and constant monitoring from fermentation to bottling ensures that the soundness of the fruit from the vineyard remains the same in the bottle.
We believe that the soils, the climate and the care that goes into our wines make them unique.
The Sandhurst Ridge vineyard is planted on the western side of a line of hills on the western fringe of Bendigo.
The site is relatively frost-free at budburst and onwards. The soil conditions at first are somewhat inhospitable with a very thin layers of top soil over some 60-100cms of heavy red clay interspersed with quartz and ironstone.
The clay reacts to moisture levels, opening up when dry and closing up tight and retaining moisture when wet.
With normal winter rainfall, the need for supplementary irrigation is minimal once the vines are established.
