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. Today, Butchers Hill is the site of the steepest sloping vineyard in Coal River Valley, invigorated by afternoon sea breezes and prevailing winds from the roaring forties, its highly auspicious, self mulching black Vertosols, yield extraordinary wines. 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. Not just a..

There are the pebbled ironstone soils of Farrago, which create an uncannily Burgundesque style of Chardonnay, redolent of grapefruits, mealy bran and wet flint. The precious half hectare at Faultline articulates the savouryness of seaweed and struck match. The sheltered lee of Haven Block encourages the grapes to bloom with chewy red jube characters.

Woodstock are made to an elegant yet generous style. In the vineyard, the key is to manage leaf canopies carefully ensuring only the best fruit is produced. The number of leaves are reduced to ensure perfect ripening of berries, permitting good exposure to sunlight and air. Yields are deliberately kept low for good flavour concentration. The best Italian crushers are employed for their gentleness and ability to modulate according to taste. The finished wine is treated to eighteen months in a selection of small, seasoned and new French and American oak barrels, enhancing without dominating the palate, retaining strong varietal expression as complimented by soft, toasty flavours. Alcohol 15.0%
Deep black purple hues. Bursts of blackcurrant, violets and choc mint, licorice, black olives and bay. The palate is full and rich in flavour, lush dark berries coat the mouth while savoury tannins and supporting cedary oak form the structure to encase the fruit as it lingers, retaining the bramble and chocolate savouryness which are so articulate of McLaren Vale Cabernet.
