Additional information

Trentham Estate

The Murphy family arrived in Australia in 1909 from Ireland and so are numbered among the Irish ‘Winegeese’ who, from the 18th century onwards, engaged in the wine trade in the countries of their adoption and were instrumental in the viticultural development of some of the finest wine-growing areas of the world. Today the many and illustrious wines and labels of the Winegeese have become synonymous with quality on the international market.

The winemaking philosophy at Trentham Estate has always been to produce high-quality varietal wines with an emphasis on full fruit flavour while offering fantastic value for money right across the range. On trend with varietal plantings and never shy to try the untried, they recently achieved a 5* winery rating from James Halliday; the very first estate in the region to do so.

Production

Vinification details
The fruit was selectively harvested, crushed to a small closed fermenter and pumped over daily with a cool, long fermentation using a Syrah yeast strain. Extended time on skins allowed the tannins to soften and balance with the primary fruit, about 3 weeks in total. The wine was then pressed and matured in 40% new and 60% older French oak barriques for 18 months prior to bottling.
