"Supple but sturdy. Plums, cherries, sweet milk chocolate, aniseed and peppercorn. Boasts both volume and spread of flavour. Fine-grained tannin, leaning toward the assertive side, is more than just a tidying influence; it gives the fun a purpose; a future." 95 points, James Halliday Wine Companion, July 2015.

Background

Vintage Notes: The 2013 growing season and vintage provided many challenges for growing and winemaking in the Great Southern region. Hot spells throughout the summer months, particularly late December and January, saw little rain until harvest. This particularly hot and dry period put stress on some blocks to maintain crop level. Though the dry spell brought harvest dates forward, all of Forest Hill's dry grown blocks retained intrinsic natural acidity and consistent flavour profile and tannin structure.
