Just three kilometres from Young along Murringo Road, planted to a brisk 500 metres above sea level, Grove Estate was originally sown to vines in 1886, by Croatian settlers who brought cuttings from their farms on the Dalmatian coast. Some of these ancient plantings, emigrated at a time when much of Europe was ruled by Hapsburg emperors, remain productive to this day. Newer blocks were gradually established around these priceless parcels, ostensibly with a view to supplying leading national brands. The quality of fruit became so conspicuous that Grove Estate sanctioned industry celebrities from Ravensworth and Clonakilla to begin bottling under their own estate moniker. The greater Hilltops region is renowned for elegantly structured Cabernet and Shiraz. Grove Estate go one better, they deliver harvests of the most princely Sangiovese, Nebbiolo and Barbera.

All fruit is picked at complete physiological ripeness, to obtain optimal balance of natural sugar and flavour development. Grapes are destemmed into open fermenters, pH is adjusted and vinification takes place over the course of a week at 24°C. The ferments are treated to hand plunging thrice daily until completion and basket pressed by hand in the old world style, a component is transferred to seasoned oak barrels for malolactic and maturation. A mostly Shiraz wine with inclusions of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, all parts are racked and returned to barrel two or three times throughout a term of twelve months, achieving a clarified wine that does not need any fining or filtration prior to bottling.
Deep red colour. Lifted aromas of ripe plums and spice, violets, vanillan and cardamon coffee grounds, cigarbox and creamy oak. An intense palate of dark fruit flavours, red currants and black bramble characters are supported by the most gripping tannins. A full bodied wine to accompany char grilled ribeye or ripe, pungent hard cheese.
