"Deep ruby with a bright rim. Dark berries, violet, olive and tobacco on the nose; smells a lot like a northern Rhone wine. Sappy blackberry and cherry preserve flavors are complemented by notes of violet pastille and black olive, with silky tannins adding shape and support. No excess fat here. Finishes gently sweet and nicely focused. This is balanced to age." 90 points - Josh Raynolds - International Wine Cellar
"Black pepper and currant aromas with a deep red colour with hints of purple hue. Soft silky tannins supported by mulberry, wild blackberries and blackcurrant flavours.This is a medium-bodied wine which makes an ideal accompaniment to a wide variety of dishes, especially red meat dishes such as grills, roasts and casseroles, lamb, duck, pork or venison." -Winery
"Founded in 1988 by owner David Clarke, Poole's Rock Vineyard is the viticultural birthplace of Poole's Rock Wines, a Hunter Valley landmark that takes its name from the monolith on its southern boundary."
"Poole's Rock Vineyard was founded in 1988 in the Broke Fordwich district of the Hunter Valley by businessman David Clarke. Located 30 kilometres west of the main Hunter vineyard region, the original 32-hectare property is named after the monolith on its southern boundary, which in turn takes its name from a prominent local character who lived in the area over 100 years ago."
"It took two years to find the ideal site that has become one of the Hunter Valley's icon family vineyard estates. Planting commenced in 1988 with four prime hectares devoted solely to chardonnay, an endeavour described at the time by legendary Australian winemaker, Murray Tyrrell, as 'the viticultural showpiece of the Hunter Valley.'" -Winery
