Overview

Ancient and secluded, Wrattonbully is one of Australia’s most exciting viticultural discoveries of recent times.

Blessed with the celebrated soil profile of Terra Rossa over limestone, the region is rapidly establishing a high class reputation for wines of depth and elegance.

Soft yet full of flavour, rich and elegant. Wrattonbully Merlot bewitches with its flavour, intensity and opulence. Along with Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot is naturally at home within this young viticultural region in South Australia’s Limestone Coast.

Winery Tasting Notes

Aroma

The bouquet is a complex and savoury one of briar and cedar and gains further complexity by notes of wet slate, spicy pimento and the piquancy of smoked paprika.

Palate

The palate is bright and lifted with cherry and spice box fruit. Fine grained tannin building from the mid palate carrying the wine through to a generous and lingering finish.

Food Matching

A wine to contemplate and enjoy with a fine, vintage cheddar.

Winery Profile

Smith & Hooper wines are sourced entirely from two Wrattonbully estate vineyards - adjacent vineyard blocks previously owned by the Smith and Hooper families. These are premium red wines from exceptional vineyard sites where the winemaking philosophy is to let the terroir speak for itself - and it does. The elements of soil and climate at Smith & Hooper have transformed the noble varieties of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon into wines of finesse and distinction.
