With grapes sourced from our oldest and lowest-yielding vines, this wine reveals its pedigree in its balance and complexity. Deep purple with a fresh edge, it shows spicy oak and cherries on the nose. The lengthy, velvety palate follows through with dark berries and a light hint of pepper. 2012 was a beautiful vintage. Patience in cellaring for five to ten years will be well-rewarded.
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.
