Which Wines Should l Try?
The ‘Single Vineyard’ wines are produced from specific sections in the vineyards. Red Hill’s Winemaker has tasted every panel of fruit in the vineyards and has isolated the sections that become their flagship wines.
Single Vineyard Pinot Noir – This sublime wine is crimson in colour and has an attractive bouquet of dark cherry and subtle oak. The palate is a real delight and delivers an abundance of cherry fruit that lingers and flows into a wealth of integrated oak.
Single Vineyard Chardonnay – In the glass, it’s colour is a distinct mid-yellow whilst on the nose there is a delightful bouquet of lifted stone fruit and sweet vanillin oak. On the palate, it is a full bodied, elegant Chardonnay that is well balanced with fruit, acidity and robust oak integration.
Single Vineyard Shiraz – In the glass, it’s colour is a distinct Crimson and purples whilst on the nose there is a delightful bouquet of lifted raspberry, mulberry, plum and vanillin oak. On the palate, it is a full bodied, elegant Shiraz that is well balanced with fruit weight, acidity and robust oak integration
