Vegan Australia Certified

COLOUR

Dark crimson with a purple hue.

NOSE

Lifted aromas of upfront liquor cassis, grilled herbs and nuances of fresh roast coffee beans and cinnamon infused ganache.

PALATE

Rich palate of blackcurrant and plum with a touch of sweet toast menthol and molasses.  This is an elegant and well layered wine, with balanced acidity and supple tannins integrated from the refined French oak, finishing with poise and a seamless length.

WINEMAKING

The Organic Estate vineyard provides all the fruit for this wine. Large static, as well as the traditional open top fermenters, were both used to ferment on skins over a period of eight to ten days, with regular pump-overs and head plunging for maximum extraction of fruit flavours, colour and the delicate fruit tannins. The wine was then transferred into French oak hogsheads and barrel aged for 11 months.

FOOD PAIRING

Classic grilled beef burger topped with melted Gruyère, Asian BBQ lamb ribs or a mushroom stroganoff.

VINTAGE NOTES

A relatively cool summer made for one of the best vintages for many years with harvest taking place weeks later than usual and the slower ripening providing more time for flavour development and more intensely flavoured grapes.

We're pleased to offer shipping Australia-wide.Delivery & Shipping Details

Mount Avoca use both couriers and Australia Post to ensure a reliable and efficient delivery service. If you are not at home to accept your delivery, they will leave your wine in a safe place, though Aus Post may leave a card for collection from your nearest post office. Please specify as much detail as possible in the 'delivery instructions' area and we will do our best to ensure a seamless delivery.

Please contact us if you have any delivery concerns, or if you need to make alternative arrangements.

Pricing & Delivery Costs

Note that freight costs have increased dramatically in the last three years as businesses struggle with chronic staff shortages, high fuel costs and significant wage increases.  While freight may look expensive we are still subsidizing the costs of admin, pick and pack, and then courier, freight and Ausist charges.

We recommend ordering your favourite bottles in groups of 6 or 12 to save on shipping costs. You can order your favourite wines by the bottle to create your own mixed 6-pack or dozen.
