Vineyard Notes

The summer was extremely hot with temps skyrocketing up to 40 degrees and our grapes responded well with full bunches hanging low to the ground, bursting with flavour.

Tasting Notes

The first two things that grab you about this wine are basically its classiness and its depth...we all know a person who is physically larger than the average but who is also as elegant as a pencil pine. This is that person in wine form....fine tannins, direct down-the-middle uncompromising acid. Hanging from that framework is voluminous flavour, structure and body. The nose is dark sultry berries, with cedar wood and cloves. Although the palate has an oaky tarriness reminiscent of the best of the older style European reds, it epitomizes Australian winemaking technical correctness with crisp, clean, primary fruit flavours, and an acid/tannin balance to die for. The finish is exceptional with spicy red fruits topped with a caramel marzipan waft. 2018 was an outrageously fantastic year for Hunter Valley reds, and "The Architect" is living proof that the Broke-Fordwich region shared in the wealth of wonders that year produced.

Food Matches

It shrieks for vivacious cheddars, or succulent lamb... think slow-cooked shanks done with Mediterranean vegies and some crispy sprout leaves.
