Redbank Winery was established by Neill and 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.
From the first plantings to the latest vintage, the Redbank Winery has established a reputation for producing wines of excellent quality, consistency and value. The winery is 18km north of Avoca on the Sunraysia Highway.

Winery Tasting Notes
This powerful wine has a clear Ruby Violet colour with a tinge of purple.
Distinctive legs as usual. The fresh berry aromas have a definite cigar box background with some Rose and Violet floral notes. Some lifted spice and cherry aromas are evident as well.
Definite, balanced and fine palate, fresh and tasting of berries but overall wine flavoured. Subtle and complex new wood flavours are well integrated. Some dark cherry flavours on the front palate. The middle palate is “wine” all the way with lingering complex savoury flavours but more fresh fruit characters than the previous vintages. Fine grained natural tannins. Very long soft clean finish with hints of spices and a lovely aftertaste. This wine is deceptively soft, as usual with Sally’s Paddocks at this stage, and will mature beautifully for at least 20 years.
