Looking out from d’Arry’s Verandah Restaurant, Peppermint Paddock slopes south down the hillside. Chester d'Arenberg thought that Chambourcin, would work well on the lean soils and replanted the site in 1989. Each batch of fruit is gently crushed to retain as many whole berries as possible. The musts are transferred to open fermenters where the skins are permanently submerged. Batches are vinified for up to a fortnight without any plunging or pumpovers. Ferments are treated to a session of foot treading and basket pressed. A portion of vintage fortified Shiraz is included in the final assemblage to add richness, to infuse the palate with plum chocolate complexity and contribute a measure of pepper spice.
Deep vibrant crimson purple mousse, a fine persistent bead. Freshly crushed grape nose, lifted aromas are dominated by a full range of summer pudding notes, sarsaparilla, blackcurrant leaf and boysenberry jam. Refreshing medium bodied palate, juicy raspberry and mulberry flavours. A wine of extraordinary length, rich sweet flavours and gorgeous, chewy tannins.
