Winemaker's Notes:

This deep red wine delivers aromas which are rich, bright and fresh, chock full of spicy berry fruits with hints of earthiness and cedary oak. A medium to full bodied wine with currants and plums in a fresh structured palate that finishes leaner with fine grainy tannins.

Enjoy this wine with pork loin, stuffed with wild mushroom and truffle served on creamy sweet potato.

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.
