The Wine

'Complex honey, praline, toast and lanolin aromas and flavours dominate, with a light oak background adding weight and a crisp citrus finish. Only a couple of barrels made each year, so a rarity and little known generally as a Jasper Hill wine from Heathcote. Drink later in the meal, with poultry, cheese or full flavoured vegetable dishes. 13.0% alc/vol.' Ron Laughton + Emily McNally

About the Wine Maker

Established in 1975 by Ron and Elva Laughton, Jasper Hill producers some of Australia’s most compelling and sought after wines. Located at Heathcote in Central Victoria on ancient Cambrian soils-deep, red coloured, well drained gravely loams on undulating hillsides. These support low-vigour vine growth without the need for supplementary irrigation. The wines are produced entirely on the estate using organic and biodynamic principles. Inter row mulching and self made organic compost is used to improve soil organic matter. This allows greater bio-diversity in micro flora and fauna, supporting large earthworm populations beneficial for natural soil fertility. Following these principles no synthetic chemicals have ever been applied to the soils or vines. Vines are grown on un-grafted root-stock and non irrigated, expressing flavours and characteristics natural to their variety and terroir. Grown at elevations of 1000 feet the vines benefit from warm days but cool nights, imperative for natural acid retention and structure. None of the wines from Jasper Hill vineyards has even been acid adjusted at any stage. These are natural wines of striking purity. With more than 35 vintages to their credit, these wines have a long established record for ageing gracefully with careful cellaring.
