Description


Hope Estate has 28 hectares of vines at Donnybrook, in the Geographe region of Western Australia. The cabernet and merlot grapes are crushed on the west coast and then transported by truck across the Nullarbor Plains to the Hunter Valley on the east coast where they are fermented and bottled. The must is chilled for this three day road trip and arrives with amazing colour and tannin extraction. The 'Cracker' is an amazing wine.  With the extended cold maceration, Hope Estate have achieved dense colour and flavours that are not overdone.  It's a wine described as elegantly big as it shows the best of the cooler West Australian climate as the merlot nicely rounds out the cabernet characters.  Truly a cracker!

Made up of  30% American oak during fermentation. For maturation 30% French oak and 70% American oak. Lifted generous blackberry characters with the warmth of liquorice, chocolate and sweet vanillan oak. This full bodied wine is perfect with a juicy lamb dish or can handle rich beef or duck.

‘’Nice big bugger this one. Lots of flavour, lots of personality. Not over the top though like some brutes who just don’t know when to call it quits. Men want to be like this wine and women swoon over his strong presence!’’ â€“ Tosh, from Big Time Wine

Tasting Note: Upfront sweet blackberry and blueberry fruit explode to fill the palate. A full bodied mouthfeel is supported by ripe tannins and vanillan oak balanced by the mint and eucalypt notes.
