Tasting Notes

Aromatically the wine is marked by intense aromas of creamy, dark berry fruit, chocolate and fresh vanilla bean with a fleeting glimpse of the exotic dried spice jar. On the palate the wine opens with an unctuous mouth filling attack, whilst still showing fresh and balanced without any hint of heaviness. Primary dark fruit remains ever present and a super fine tannin frame pins in the fruit just enough to provide a focused end point for the line of travel More tightly coiled in its youth than some other vintages the wine will benefit from some cellaring or a decant. Suitable for vegetarians and vegans.

Winemakers Note

The Narrow Road Vineyard sits high on the hills behind the township of Rowland Flat. The vines grown adjacent to the original Schild homestead that was purchased and settled by Ben and Alma Schild in 1952 on what was historically known as ‘Narrow Road’. Hand harvested and then crushed into traditional open top fermenters, the wine undergoes pre-fermentation cold soak and is then either gently pumped over or punched down by hand according to winemaker specifications so as to obtain optimal colour and retain complex fruit flavours. Additional post fermentation maceration usually occurs before the wine is then drained and pressed to barrel. Free run and pressings are usually kept separate and a combination of new and aged oak barrels are used for a maturation of between 18-24 months. The two varieties are kept separate until blending and bottling. The wine then sees some further time in bottle prior to release.
