A medium-bodied palate with red and black berries. Layers of spice, dark plum, cassis and berry fruit adorn the palate - pleasantly held together by fine tannins. Smooth & delicious. A food friendly red if there ever was one! This deceptively lighter style wine is equally comfortable being enjoyed with a cheese & charcuterie board or a warm home cooked meal, such as; spaghetti bolognaise, lamb cutlets or braised rabbit served with tomato and olives.
95 Point Rated James Halliday Wine Companion
"Shiraz, grenache and mataro sourced from some of the 150yo vines on the estate. The price is extremely low for a wine with such history. Red, blue and black berry fruits are woven together by a gently savoury film of tannins and subtle oak justifying the choice to drink it now or much later."
91 Point Rated Huon Hooke
“Medium to full red to brick-red colour with the merest tinge of purple, the bouquet is subtle and earthy with spicy notes and a plummy edge. It's admirably fruit-driven. Peppery mataro is evident. The wine is medium-weight at best and savoury, with some forward-development evident. It's ready now, fairly mellow, beautifully balanced and very pleasant drinking.”

Named in honour of our family’s original use for the building that now houses our Cellar Door, the Butchers Block Red is a structured, fruit-driven & medium bodied wine. A crowd-pleasing style of wine that offers excellent value for money.
A return to the vintage of old with vintage beginning somewhat later than recent years. High spring rainfall and consistent temperatures throughout the growing season saw higher yields coupled with excellent flavour intensity. Overall, another exceptional year. Each varietal is vinified & aged individually in French oak barrels before the final blending process. Shiraz adds the generous mouthfeel, Grenache the spice and cherry-like sweetness and Mataro the backbone, savoury edge and fragrance. Balance is crucial, each varietals contribution is evident, yet nothing competes for your attention.
