The objective with Hyland is to create a youthful, rich and mellow wine designed to drink now. A wine of varietal fruits but only a hint of American oak. The oak adds complexity to the flavours and enhances the fruit. This wine must show regional characteristics, varietal fruit and have plenty of flavour.

Deep colour, with red and black fruit combining for a fleshy medium-bodied and fresh finish; best enjoyed in the short to medium term.

Winery Tasting Notes
Deep red in colour with a faint purple hue.
Fresh black cherry and blueberries are evident on the nose, with nuances of smoke, vanillin, mocha and chocolate.
The youthful palate has a tight structure with good natural acidity. Still, even at this young age the palate is quite fleshy, with a diverse flavour profile of berries, black olives, spice and smokey oak. The young tannins are quite dry, but will soften with age and become more opulent over time. A wine that will age well, but has enough softness to be enjoyed on release.
