Winery Tasting Notes

Medium red in colour with a crimson hue. This is a perfumed, rich and decadent red wine, with aromas of chocolate, dark black fruits and spices. This classic blend incorporates and marries the best of both varieties. The wine is generous and spicy with flavours of chocolate, cassis and cedar, combining with a savoury finish. The tannins are sublime; this is a delicious, bold wine with great length. Drinking well now, and will be lovely cellared to 2022. This wine is an excellent accompaniment to a rich tomato based beef tortellini with aged parmesan or ratatouille with baked polenta.

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.
