Expert Reviews

Good colour; a luscious array of gently spicy black fruits and licorice on the bouquet and palate; has the tannin structure to underpin a decade-plus in bottle. Rating 94 - Drink by 2020 - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (DEC/2009)

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

This lovely wine has a vivid deep ruby red colour with a tinge of violet.

Aroma

Lifted cherry liquor aromas with some cedar and vanilla background lead to an overall character of ripe autumn berries and some subdued spice notes.

Palate

Slightly dusty with a little leafiness. Soft, round and full palate, tasting of ripe berry fruit and lifted dark chocolate, with new oak flavours totally integrated. Fresh savoury middle palate with lingering complex wine flavours. Very long, soft finish with hints of cloves.

Cellaring

This wine deceptively soft and easy to drink and will need some time to develop its latent power. The 2008 Sally’s Paddock should keep well for up to 10 or 15 years.

Winery Profile

Redbank Winery was established by Neill & Sally Robb in the Pyrenees region of Central Victoria in 1973.

It is distinctly Australian and is named after the small town of Redbank situated three kilometers to the north. It is located 2 hours north-west of Melbourne in the heart of the Pyrenees range.

Redbank Winery has established a reputation for producing wines of excellent quality, consistency and value. The winery is 18kms north of Avoca on the Sunraysia Highway.

Neill & Sally planted their first vines in 1973; which consisted of Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Malbec varieties. Today there are 18 hectares (45 acres) under vine, which produce exceptional quality grapes. The original vineyard of Sally’s Paddock, named after Neill’s wife Sally, is still a non-irrigated single vineyard that continues to deliver a wine of wonderful complexity and depth.

In 1975, using local century old hand made red bricks, Neill built our steep-gabled winery, known as Redbank Winery. This today provides a fabulous ambiance to taste the wines and also enjoy the delicious hand made dishes, at the Flying Pig Deli.

After 37 years of operation, Redbank Winery continues to be wholly owned and operated by Neill & Sally Robb.

Sally’s Paddock is proudly listed as ‘Distinguished’ on the Langton’s Classification of Distinguished Australian Wine. The Sally’s Paddock has been listed in their catalogue since it’s inception. Langton’s Classification is now a cornerstone of the ultra-fine Australian wine market. It is based on the actual buying patterns of their clients (over 6000 active members). Thus it transcends personal agendas, pompous glorifications and endless accolades.
