Wine Profile

Our Breaking Ground Range celebrates our focus on innovation pioneering alternative wines and wine styles. The grapes for this wine were picked from a single block off the old Saxonvale vineyard growing on the red volcanic soil of the Fordwich Sill. In 2018 the quality of Mourvedre was exceptional, we hand picked a couple of the rows of Mourvedre and kept it separate through ferment and maturation. 18 months later we deemed the quality of this batch high enough to bottle as a straight Mourvedre.  It is the first and the only Mourvedre made in the Hunter.

Region Broke Fordwich, Hunter Valley

Nose  Raspberry, cherry, and dusty earth

Winemakers Notes 

The 2018 vintage had perfect ripening conditions with dry, warm days paired with cooler nights resulting in beautifully ripe and healthy fruit. The Fruit for this wine was handpicked and fermented in a temperature controlled environment.  After fermentation the wine was placed in new and used French oak barriques where it matured for 20 months prior to bottling.
