What the Experts Say

I tasted three wines from Vinden today, from the smoke tainted 2020 vintage, and this is the best of them. The Pokolbin Blanc very ashen and bitter on the finish, and the Nouveau Red also a bit all over the place, and while it presents well enough for the first two thirds of the tasting, the finish is akimbo. Anyway, fair play to them for supporting their growers and trying the best they could from that tragic vintage.

Smoked ham, pale red fruit, blood orange crunch, nice texture, fine dusty and white pepper feel, finish is bright and fine and tangy, though some bitterness, soapy and ashen character mars the finish. A fair result from a tough year, but drink before 2020 closes.

Winemakers Comments

Sourced from the Howard family Somerset Vineyard where I once worked and Ablington vineyard. This wine was my favourite to make for 2020, 6 different ferments were blended together to create a delicious, dry, textual rosé. Fermented in stainless steel & seasoned French oak barrels and given extended lees contact. The wine is a blend of Tempranillo, Semillon, Shiraz, Chardonnay & Gewürztraminer. 

About the Region

The Hunter Valley, located approximately 2 hours north of Sydney, is one of Australia’s best-known wine regions and since its foundation has produced many fine, internationally recognised wines. The valley has over 150 wineries producing exceptional wines with Semillon, Chardonnay and Shiraz being the dominant varietals of the region.

Hunter Valley has one of the warmest, humid and wettest climates of Australia, but afternoon cloud cover and sea breeze reduce the impact that would otherwise seriously affect the growth of the vines.
