Trentham Estate was once part of a large sheep station called Trentham Cliffs, settled in the 1930s by the Chanter family. Grazing and viticulture have always been a close fit, the property eventually made the transition to agriculture and the inaugural edition of Trentham Estate was vintaged by the Mildura Murphys in 1984. Trentham retain a superior site of Shiraz in the very heat of the Heathcote region, for the creation of a generously proportioned wine, characterized by a seamlessly layered palate of piquantly spiced berry flavours and stylish, velvet tannins.
The Trentham team know that good wines are made in the vineyard, quality of fruit is paramount, the highest standards of viticulture are essential, hard work among the vines is rewarded with the finest harvests. Shiraz is harvested throughout the cool of night and promptly delivered to the estate wineworks. Grapes are crushed and destemmed into fermenters for several days vinification at warmer temperatures. Juices are pumped over twice daily to ensure balanced ferments and optimal extraction of colour and tannin. Upon completion, batches are pressed to a selection of French oak for eighteen months maturation, followed by racking and the final assemblage. Alcohol 14.5%
TASTING NOTES
Dense red colour. Rich nose exuding lifted aromas of pepper and plums, chocolates and dark cherry. The palate is long and generous with a sweetness of fruit balanced by fine oak tannins. Licorice and coffee notes weave through the dark berry flavours, lingering nicely on the fine grained, chewy plum finish.

About Trentham Estate Winery
The Murphy Family migrated to Australia from Ireland in 1909 and were one of the first settlers to establish vineyards at Merbein 15km west of Mildura
The Murphys eventually moved to Trentham Cliffs in 1960 and re-developed one of the local properties which was once part of a large sheep station. Jack and Moya Murphy established their farm, which included plantings such as citrus, vegetables and grapes for fortified wines, and then later re-planted to specialize in varietal grapes. The vines flourished in the rich red loam over limestone soils, nurtured by water from the Murray River. The first vintage was produced in 1984, using only 6 tonnes of grapes. Trentham Estate»
