Inky black with dusty red hue. Liquorice, black cherries and pepper and spice. Some vanilla oak and earth characters are also evident. The palate has rich liquorice and black cherry flavours with notes of blackberry, vanillin oak and pepper and spice following up. The fine-grained tannins provide wonderful length and a framework for the long finish.

Pioneer Andrew O'Keefe migrated to Victoria's goldfields from Ireland, finding his fortune in unique iron railways and bridges. In 1888 O'Keefe's own locomotive pulled the very first passenger train from Sandhurst to Heathcote. The Heathcote line originally ran passenger series as well as transporting local supplies to the gold mines in Bendigo. Our wine is a tribute to the many early pioneers who built the historic railways and helped to unite Australia's many township and people.
Sourced from a single vineyard just outside the township of Heathcote bordering the O’Keefe Rail Trail. The vineyards aspect is northeast facing with a gentle sloping contour in the world renowned ancient Cambrian soils. Fruit was machine picked and de-stemmed prior to crushing and fermentation with 20% whole punch. We used a combination of new and old American and French oak to develop flavour in line with fruit concentration.
