Winemaker's Notes

Hope Estate has 30 acres of vines in the Macedon Ranges region of Victoria. Located at the foot of the Great Dividing Range the area is described as "marginal" due to low temperatures and strong winds. This challenging climate produces very intense flavors from low yielding vines. The vines were planted in 1968 and are dry grown without irrigation.

A stunning, dry grown, cool climate wine from their famous Virgin Hills vineyard and Hope's first release of the Shiraz Malbec blend. Every year they taste the Shiraz and Malbec as individual parcels and we comment how great they are. Finally they released this fun blend of 80% Shiraz and 20% Malbec.

A dark red and inky wine with inticing aromas of white pepper spice, plum and strawberry. A full bodied wine with hints of cedary oak, a fleshy mid palate and super fine tannins. The Malbec adds some interesting berry characters to the Shiraz. The perfect accompaniment to a juicy steak or lamb.

This is an excellent wine with great character. It is smooth to drink. I enjoyed it so much I ordered in twice.

The first thing I noticed when pouring out this glass was just how deep and thick it was. The Malbec and Shiraz combo has produced a very intense red here. I loved every sip of it though. A really tasty and inky wine with a blueberry and plum flavor. I would recommend to anyone who can a appreciate a "real" wine!
