‘The Oddball’ is always made in small volumes no matter which vintage, however the 2015 vintage is a rarity in itself due to a massive crop wipeout.
Black Sheep Club Exclusive
James Halliday - " Rich black fruits, dark chocolate and licorice on the bouquet, then a sumptuously rich, layered palate, its balance and length exemplary."
James Halliday - "This comes from 81 year old vines, but the colour is a touch lighter. The bouquet and palate are more spicy and savoury, but the mouthfeel is gloriously supple and balanced."
'Terroir' is a word that encapsulates the taste of a wine due to its unique environment - altitude, climate, rainfall, temperature and soil. The Black Blood trio are each from a different Hugh Hamilton vineyard with a distinct terroir.
It began nearly two centuries ago. Our family planted grape vines in South Australia in 1837 and made the first wine in the colony. Those vine cuttings arrived, dipped in wax. ‘Pure Black’ carries our Hamilton family story into the 6th generation.
