Description

Located near the tiny village of Moonambel in the heart of the Pyrenees region of Western Victoria, Dalwhinnie specialise in Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. After 25 years of growing grapes, the 18 hectare vineyard is now fully mature. At 595 metres above sea-level Dalwhinnie is the highest and most remote of the Pyrenees district vineyards. Surrounded and sheltered by the highest range, located in a naturally undulating trough which falls away from the hills, forming an amphitheatre nestled into the ranges. Ownership of Dalwhinnie has remained within one family. In 1972 the remote property was purchased. The founder, Ballarat architect Ewan Jones, established the vineyard in 1976. His eldest son David, has managed it since 1983 and, with his wife, Jenny, has owned it since 1994.

A spicy, brambly / black fruit, self indulgent fireside red, with rich ferrous and dust, chocolate and crushed rock aromas. This is all mirrored in the palate with blueberries and blackberries, a crunchy minerality and sweet spice. There is a hint of sappiness and a slightly salty finish, with great length.
