Overview

Vintage 2012 in Wrattonbully was very pleasing, with fruit quality being exceptional across all varieties. Mild temperatures were the greatest influence in Wrattonbully during this season, budburst was early across the majority of varieties and the mild temperatures continued into the New Year allowing the white grapes to retain their natural acidity.

Winery Tasting Notes

Aroma

The wine’s aromas are intense with tropical notes of guava, passion fruit and paw paw. This is given complexity by roasted nuts and nougat.

Palate

The palate offers a burst of flavour opening deliciously with grapefruit moving to a stone fruit and citrus compote. There is middle palate textural richness reminiscent of baked lemon curd tart. The wine finishes long and refreshing.

Food Matching

Enjoy with light summer meals; try with a char-grilled octopus salad.

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.
