Old Richmond Gaol was one of Diemen Land's first prisons, built by the convicts themselves, of good old fashioned granite blocks, laboriously hauled in wooden hand carts and quarried from the ominously monikered Butchers Hill.

Established by founding members of the Hobart Beefsteak & Burgundy Club, Butchers Hill represents three generations of passion amongst the nether vineyards of the Apple Isle.

Johann Gottfried Scholz served in the Prussian army as a battlefield bonesetter, before joining the great emigration of Lutherans from Silesia to Barossa Valley. After building a family homestead along the alluvial banks of Para River, Gottfried established a mixed farm of livestock and crops, fruit trees and grapevines, Semillon and Shiraz. His acumen at healing fractures and setting splints made Gottfried a leading local identity, as his homestead cottage evolved into the Barossa's very first private hospital. Over a century later, the exceptional quality of harvest from Gottfried's original homestead, made the fruit of Willows Vineyard, an essential component in the most memorable vintages of Peter..

Parcels are harvested throughout the cool of night from Chrismont's splendid King Valley vineyards and treated to a pre-ferment cold soak maceration. The crushed musts are inoculated with choice yeasts and vinified in controlled fermenters at temperatures peaking to 25C. Components are given a fortnight on skins for optimal extraction of good colour and tannin. The wines are aged in a selection of seasoned oak barriques for up to a year before assembling into the finished wine.
Deep red black colour, crimson hues. A touch of soft chocolate, dark plum and violets with a hint of confectionary and background cedar. Dark fruit richness of blackcurrant and mulberry, supported by velvety, plumy textures. A rich, ripe weighty palate in excellent balance over fine grain, dry tannins and an intense, rounded and persistent finish. Enjoy with duck breast, rissoles or lamb.
