Winemaker's Notes:

Deep purple red in colour. Rich, ripe and jubey blackcurrants and plums with cool fresh minty notes and cedary oak. A full-bodied wine with an immediate up front fruit impact. Showing rich, sweet flesh but finishing leaner with fine powdery tannins. Certainly a wine to cellar for the medium term, up to 5-7 years.
My Notes:

About Redbank:

Redbank captures the rugged essence of Australia's High Country of North East Victoria as well as the collaborative spirit of the early Australian pioneers. A small, select "family" of grape growers have come together for a common effort to produce the premium fruit for the wines of Redbank. Vineyards which are lashed by blizzardly cold winter winds and buried in snow for part of the year emerge at harvest with grapes of the highest quality that enable the Redbank winemakers to produce superb cool climate wines, infused with plenty of hard work and humor.
