Scotchmans Hill is located on an extinct volcano named Mount Bellarine. Thick, black and fertile volcanic soils of black clay with basalt subsoil lend individual and intense characters to the wines.

Bright crimson-purple; the bouquet ranges through blackberry, black cherry, spice, pepper and licorice, all of which come through on the vibrantly flavoured palate, proclaiming its cool climate; high quality oak has been used to best advantage, the tannins perfectly pitched, the finish exceptionally long.

Winery Tasting Notes
Perfumed nose of red fruits, raspberries, spice, sappy notes from whole bunches in ferment and toasty oak.
Unctuous with red fruits, sappy notes, touch of liquorice, spice and a long toasty oak finish. Fine grain tannins and firm acid gives the wine excellent structure, length and longevity to be enjoyed over the next 8 to 10 years.
