'Hopping Stone' Tempranillo

N/A  

Campbell Mattinson from 'The Wine Front' says...

"This has lots of dry, savoury tannin and a good deal of sour-sweet cherry-like flavour. Thereís spicy, chocolaty, pencilly oak here too and the more it opens up the more beguiling it becomes. I wasnít sure of this at first but after a couple of hours of sipping at it, I was loving it. Itís going to be an interesting journey to see where this wine goes as it ages."

Merlot / Cabernet Franc

N/A  

Campbell Mattinson from 'The Wine Front' says...

"Itís a wine of style, thatís for sure. A wine that trips to its own beat. Itís all dry chocolate and floral aromatics, matched in the mouth by a combination of oxidative sweetness and long, dry, ropey tannin, a combination that works very well. Itís low in alcohol (12.7%) but totally ripe, its sense of balance and structure judged to a tee. Itís an interesting drink young, and should be better in three years."

2004 Merlot / Cabernet Franc N/A  

Campbell Mattinson from 'The Wine Front' says...

"What a delicious wine - and more than that, itís fine and structured and long too. The tannin management is strikingly good, all textural and ropey and elongated, and matched to the earthy, dusty, choc-cherried fruit provides both immediate impact and something to contemplate on. This is a new-ish Margaret River vineyard that has to have a big future. Thereís quite a bit of acidity and quite a bit of length too, and in all ways impresses. Iíd drink it young, but it will age."
