Overview

The Copper series takes our winemaking spirit to a new level, offering hand-crafted, old world-style wines with an Australian twist. The Copper series is the epitome of modern style meets classic finesse.

The fruit was sourced from two of our premium Hunter Valley vineyards, Vanessa Vale in the Lower Hunter Parish of Pokolbin and Bainton Vineyard in the Lower Hunter Parish of Broke. The Bainton portion of Shiraz and Pinot Noir compose 70% of the blend whilst the 30% from Vanessa Vale underwent extended maceration for over a year on skins.

Tasting Notes

Aroma

Rich black forest cake characters of dark, ripe berries and cassis complemented by harmonious oak and layered with complexed orange blossom and cherry.

Palate

The dark berries and rich plums continue onto the palate with added complexity of malt, coffee and star anise. Velvet like texture with soft elegant tannins and excellent length.
