Expert Reviews

The bright, although relatively light, colour and fragrant bouquet translate into a light to medium-bodied palate that is perfectly balanced and happy in its own skin, cassis, raspberry and plum are foremost, with a hint of dried herb somewhere in the background to add the right degree of complexity. No need to wait for an excuse to drink it now. Rating 90 - Drink by 2019, James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (JUL/2015).

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

In December 2005, the Mathews family acquired the long-established Hopelands Vineyard located in the pristine Margaret River wine region.

During 2006 we decided to completely rework the vineyard, requiring many hours of physical labour.

The vines were cut right back and retrellised resulting in a consequent reduction in yield and significant rise in wine quality.

The After Hours harvest is around 25 tonnes of fruit each year from which we make approximately 1500 cases of premium wine.

The vineyard consists of Cabernet Sauvignon (2.6 ha), Shiraz (1.6 ha), Merlot, Semillon, Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay (1.1 ha each).

After Hours is looking to explore the international market in the near future.
