    Winemaker Notes

    The final wine is deep red in colour with (at this early stage) bright purple tints. The nose is typical of variety and region: aromas of sweet spice and plums are supported by subtle mint, with supporting complexity from oak in the form of notes of chocolate and vanilla. Perhaps due to the inclusion of a higher proportion of Merlot, the palate is a little more approachable than the '97, with fleshy depth and even tannins. The latter build slowly (as they should) providing a dry finish.

    Nepenthe: described by Homer in The Odyssey as an Egyptian herbal drink so powerful that it eases grief and banishes sorrow from the mind.

    Up here in the cool heights of the Adelaide Hills, Nepenthe produces some soul reposing potions of their own: uncompromising wines of outstanding quality and internationally recognised distinction. Wines that, strangely enough, have been impressing both critics and consumers with their varietal faithfulness and subtle Adelaide Hills nuances. But wines this good undertake a journey as arduous and epic as Homer's famous hero - a journey that Nepenthe, like the gods, determine with immutable fascination.

    Nepenthe's commitment to consistently high quality wine starts with the land. In fact, they're so dedicated to quality that they formed two specialized companies to deal with the demands of their high altitude vines - Nepenthe Viticulture and Nepenthe Irrigation.
