Winemaker Notes

Brilliant deep purple in appearance. There are strong berry and vanilla spice characters on the nose.

The palate is full and rich, typical of Water Wheel wines, with noticeable berry and licorice flavors. The wine has excellent length with a long and persistent finish balanced with fine, chalky tannins.

It is ready to drink now and will continue to improve in the medium term. It is a superb table wine, ideal to serve with a wide variety of red meat dishes.

Critical Acclaim

JH 90
Australian Wine Companion
A dense and rich wine with black fruits and a slight minty overtone; fairly robust, the tannins needing to soften somewhat.

Water Wheel
The present Water Wheel operation is the brainchild of Peter Cumming whose family have long been established as successful growers of tomatoes and cherries around Bridgewater-on-Loddon to the north-west of Bendigo in central Victoria. Peter studied winemaking at Roseworthy, and after a few excellent years as winemaker for Hickinbotham at the old Anakie vineyard near Geelong, threw himself boots and all into the Water Wheel business. His driving ambition as a relatively inexperienced winemaker was to capture as much flavor on the palate of his wines as he possibly could, precisely the edge that Water Wheel still retains over so many of its competitors.
