Wines 1999 Chardonnay
A Chardonnay in the true premium European style made form the finest grapes grown in the Scaffidi family vineyards at Gumeracha in the Adelaide Hills. Green apple and ripe lime fruit characters on the nose, complexed with subtle toasty oak.
Although full in flavour exhibiting citrus and nectarine characters, the wine is extremely elegant. The Fruit is perfectly balanced by superb use of French Oak, giving a creamy cashew ut influence. The mouth feel lingers on and finishes with a balanced soft cleansing acidity.
Sangiovese is a popular Italian variety grape predominantly used to make Chianti or table style wines. Bright red with purple hues in colour, this wine has a sweet confectionary boiled lollies blackcurrant fruit aroma. The palate is spicy peppery with tight firm grippy Tannins and good length.
2000 High Block Cabernet Sauvignon
This typical Adelaide Hills Cabernet Sauvignon exhibits excellent lifted cool climate verietal fruit characters of cassis and plum aromas with some mint/leafiness.
The palate has good concentration with fine oak tannins and a long lingering finish. Integrated with cedary French Oak, this wine is great drinking now and will continue to gain greater complexity with further bottle saturation.
This excellently defined cool climate Shiraz exhibits rich spice, plum and Christmas pudding aromas. The palate has a good concentration, excellent balance with rounded tannins and a smooth, lingering sweet berry fruit finish.
Integrated with subtle American and French Oak, this wine has very good complexity and will continue to improve with cellaring.
"Nebbiolo, the great Italian red from the Piedmont, has taken a liking to One Tree Hill, where the breezes wash in off Gulf St Vincent, patron saint of viticulturists, to Vince and Tina Scaffidi's vines. We have a delightfully fragrant and perfumed, juicy smelling wine of modest fruity style, dominated by the contracting stiff, spinachy tannins of the variety." 89+ Points.
