    Winemaker 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.

    Hope Estate
    Hope Estate was established in 1994 when Michael Hope purchased his first vineyard in the Hunter Valley comprising 15 hectares of vines on a 112-hectare property. This parcel of land was ideally suited to whites so a second acquisition of land being 80 hectares of the famed red basalt soil at Fordwich was made. This was planted with 40 hectares of Shiraz and Merlot. The Broke-Fordwich sub-region of the Hunter Valley has been gazetted as one of the first designated Australian vineyard areas to be accorded international registration by the Geographic Indications Committee (GIC) of the Australian Winemakers Federation.

    In August of 2006, the then 43 year old Michael Hope bought the Rothbury Estate winery, cellar door, function center and surrounding 10 hectares of vineyards. With this acquisition, Hope Estate now has a total of 129.5 hectares of land on Broke Road. Michael also acquired property in Western Australia (Geography), planted mostly to Shiraz. In 2005, he introduced his Hope Estate WA Shiraz, called The Ripper (Aussie slang for "really good"), which will stylistically compliment the more medium-bodied Shiraz of the Hunter.

    Every October, Hope Estate releases special pink labels of Shiraz and Chardonnay to raise awareness and to help in the fight to stop breast cancer. Since 2007, Hope Estate and Winesellers, Ltd. have together donated over $200,000 to various breast cancer charities.
