Winemaker Notes

Bright, deep purple red in color with aromas of boysenberry and cherry jam. Forest fruit jam, vanilla with subtle oak, a hint of chocolate and a velvety, smooth finish.

Pairs well with perfectly cooked Ribeye, hearty pasta or your favorite pizza.

Blend: 41% Shiraz, 36% Grenache, 17% Malbec, 6% Petit Verdot

Tasting Panel
From the Angove family comes this modern, energetic array-Shiraz, Grenache, Malbec and Petit Verdot-awasj wotj demse, ripe, summer sweet fruit. Boysenberry, blueberry, cherries wound together and tied with a chocolate string. Sumptuous and silky, a broad surge of licorice and salted caramel mocha latte on the finish.

Juicy and full of fruit, the 2015 Hopes End Red Blend is simply delicious. This wine shows bright red berries, light jamminess, and layered, lushness. Pair it with a grilled ribeye and enjoy. (Tasted: October 5, 2017, San Francisco, CA)

Hopes End, Australia

A wine inspired by the true story of thousands of 19th century free travellers who willingly journeyed by sea from London to the far side of the world in 1886. Instead they arrived at Port Misery, South Australia…a dark swamp like place of lawlessness, low morals and high vice, far from the promising new beginnings they sought. At that moment they thought, if HOPE had brought them here, to this dismal place, then surely this was ‘Hopes End.” And so it was named.

Among these free travellers was a young doctor, who had the remarkable idea to make a new kind of tonic for his patients, wine. With this new idea came new beginnings, so in that moment they stopped always hoping for a better tomorrow, and decided to live for the day. HOPES END celebrates the courage of those willing to go on a journey of uncertainty and encourages the embracing of the unknown

HOPES END is named for the place where our wine began, in South Australia 1886. The journey for these two red wines also begins in HOPE, with the bright sunlight of our hot South Australian summers and the purity of our vines and grapes.

With hundreds of red grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended red wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World, experimentation is permitted and encouraged resulting in a wide variety of red wine styles. Blending can be utilized to enhance balance or create complexity, lending different layers of flavors and aromas. For example, a red wine blend variety that creates a fruity and full-bodied wine would do well combined with one that is naturally high in acidity and tannins. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.

How to Serve Red Wine

A common piece of advice is to serve red wine at “room temperature,” but this suggestion is imprecise. After all, room temperature in January is likely to be quite different than in August, even considering the possible effect of central heating and air conditioning systems. The proper temperature to aim for is 55° F to 60° F for lighter-bodied reds and 60° F to 65° F for fuller-bodied wines.

How Long Does Red Wine Last?

Once opened and re-corked, a bottle stored in a cool, dark environment (like your fridge) will stay fresh and nicely drinkable for a day or two. There are products available that can extend that period by a couple of days. As for unopened bottles, optimal storage means keeping them on their sides in a moderately humid environment at about 57° F. Red wines stored in this manner will stay good – and possibly improve – for anywhere from one year to multiple decades. Assessing how long to hold on to a bottle is a complicated science. If you are planning long-term storage of your reds, seek the advice of a wine professional.
