Expert Reviews

"This favourite bistro style brings a lot of everyday pleasure to the Bordeaux blend experience, here cabernet sauvignon, merlot and cabernet franc in the mix, its balance of cassis fragrance, kitchen herbal notes and squashed sweet plum and blueberry all very comfortable and a delight to drink. Food: Perfectly grilled T-bone" Tony Love, The Advertiser Top 100 Wines, 20 July 2013

Aroma

Complex and intriguing aromas of poached plums, blackcurrant, cloves and liquorice.

Palate

Cabernet Sauvignon gives the wine structure with brooding black fruits and harmonious tannin fingerprint. Merlot encourages a softness and juiciness with bursts of ripe red fruit and fresh plum jam. Finally, the Cabernet Franc contributes a delicate spiciness of black pepper and cloves, continuing with hints of dark mint chocolate and pleasant cedar box undertones.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Peter Riddoch Rymill, the elder son of John and Eleanor Rymill, was born in 1940. A keen equestrian like his father, he competed in California and Ireland, retiring after he won the Australian Show Jumping Championship in 1965.

Peter married international Three Day Eventer and Show Jumper Judith Ritchie in 1964, and horses continued to play an integral role in their competitive and farming lives.

Peter and Judy diversified into viticulture in 1968 with an experimental vineyard, and six years later the family enterprise returned to Coonawarra when planting began on the Rymill Coonawarra Vineyards.

While Judy managed the farm, Peter completed a degree in Wine Science and a diploma in Wine Marketing before he began building the winery in 1990.

Here, the vision so characteristic of his great-grandfather, John Riddoch, and his father, John Rymill, is evident. And now, with his son John and daughter Lisa, a new generation is already involved, and the Riddoch Rymill family tradition continues.
