Expert Reviews

Smith Hooper has a long track record in producing merlot with convincing varietal expression; this continues that tradition, but is on the lighter end of the spectrum with its red berry/briary mix of flavours. James Halliday, Rating 89, 27th July 2015

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.
