Perched atop the spectacular boulder strewn slopes of the Great Dividing Range, midway between Mt Macedon and Heathcote, the Granite Hills vineyard lies at the interface of climates. Essentially cool due to an altitude of 550 metres, but with a warm and dry influence from central Victoria, it’s no surprise that this is home to one of Australia’s benchmark rieslings as well as being heralded as the birthplace of peppery shiraz. Since the first plantings in 1970, Granite Hills has forged an enviable reputation winning numerous awards from local and international shows.

A totally handmade wine utilising traditional winemaking techniques of small batch fermentation and small French oak maturation. This wine exhibits savoury berry fruit and warm spicy oak wrapped in a smoothly textured tannin structure.

Hand-picked, 65% from estate vineyards, 35% from Romsey, clones MV6, G9V12, 777, 114 and 115. Remarkable deep but clear crimson-purple, amazing given its age; dark cherry and plum varietal fruit pierces the bouquet with authority, repeating its message on the long palate. This is still developing, with years left before it reaches maturity, and even more years on a picture-perfect palate. Drink by: 2033; Price: $30.00; Date Tasted: July 2017; Alcohol: 13.5%; Rating: 95 Points & Special Value Star; James Halliday; James Halliday Wine Companion
