Winemaker's Notes:

The vines produce small bunches of fruit with concentrated, pea-sized berries. These grapes, cropping at less than 2 tonnes per acre, deliver a wine of incredible power and weight which will evolve slowly over the next decade or more. Aged in French oak for 2 & 1/2 years, it has subtle vanilla overtones which complement the intensity of the fruit.
My Notes:

About Troll Creek:

Troll Creek was established by James & Jo Hage at Bethany in the Barossa Valley in 1998. Our Home Block in Bethany, nestled at the foot of the Barossa Ranges, has been tended by the Hage family since the early 1900s. An old red gum slab bridge, built by our forefathers, has stood the test of time and spans a tiny creek among the vines. As each generation has worked the vines, they've told their children of the legendary Troll who lives under the bridge.

We're still tending the Home Block and, as we've pruned and picked down near the creek, we've shared the legend of the Troll with our own children. Each year he's joined by James, a sixth generation vigneron, who hand selects rows of premium old vine Shiraz and Cabernet to produce Troll Creek's rich full-bodied red wines
