Description

Hope Estate was established in 1994 when Michael and Karen Hope purchased their first vineyard at Broke in the Hunter Valley consisting of 30 acres of vines on a 250 acre property. In 2006 their purchase of the Rothbury Estate property saw new life brought into this flagship Hunter winery. Len Evans the founder of Rothbury Estate was widely recognised as “The Godfather of the Australian wine industry” setting the foundations for what is now Hope Estate.  Finally back in family hands the Hopes’ have restored the warmth and magic that was experienced at the winery in its Rothbury days and they have transformed it into one of the Hunter Valley’s most renowned wineries.

The shiraz grapes were picked at their optimum flavour profile to ensure the correct balance in the resulting wine. Close attention and gentle handling during the fermentation (30% open ferment plus some oak fermentation) followed by meticulous blending has resulted in a full bodied wine. The oak fermentation and maturation have enhanced the peppery and spicy characters of the wine. Whilst the open ferments have increased the fruit intensity and warm colours of the Shiraz. This medium bodied wine will complement garlic and olive oil of Italian cuisine or alternatively traditional roast beef.

 “For years I’ve been pondering what to do with the exceptional wines from the exceptional vintages that we’ve had stuck away in the cellar.  Finally I’ve decided to release the Michael Hope Signature Series,” - Michael Hope. 

Tasting Note: A smooth, juicy palate with intense berry fruit. Rich mocha and spicy plums lead to an earthy finish. Soft, defined oak characters combined with silky tannins give the wine complexity and great length.
