A voluminous and multi dimensional wine, decorated by a plummage of impressive accolades from prestigious competitions, including Australian Small Winemakers Show, Le Concours des Vins and Winestate of Year. The decadant fusion of effervescence and Shiraz, redolent with spiced plums and turkish delight perfumes, the palate is brimming with a generosity of flavour, bright berries and bramble fruits characters, an elegant and fulfilling wine that engages the senses while offering great richness and immeasurable length.
Grampians Estate has quickly established an iconic reputation for its cool climate peppery Shiraz. The small eight acre site is located south of the Great Dividing Range alongside Grampians National Park. The vineyard is planted to granite soils over sandstone, vines are cane pruned and grapes are hand picked with help from the local Moyston Willaura Football Netball Club. Rutherford is an exclusively estate grown and bottled wine vinified from hand sorted Shiraz grapes and treated to the full regimen of Methode traditionelle, followed by twelve months maturation in a selection of well seasoned French oak barrels, before a further two years resting in bottle on sedimentery lees.
TASTING NOTES
Dark ruby colour, persistent purple mousse. Red and black berry bouquets with an overlay of white pepper. A full and flavoursome, mouth filling palate, medium bodied and elegent, exhibiting soft mouth feel with peppery spice undertones. Surely the most generous and effusive style of aperitif wine, without peer as conversation starter, a bliss alongside chocolate and cherry desserts.
