“Butchers Block used to be a forward-drinking SGM / Côtes-du-Rhône style wine with open fruit and minimal tannin. In the last few years it has clearly invested in a gym membership (note to self) and this has not resulted, thankfully, in a Muscle Mary physique, but in more tone and sinew than I expected. Today Butchers Block is ninja-fit with elevated aromatics and punchier tannins. There is a lot of wine here and I dearly hope that we will see it sold in many more outlets.”
Named in honour of the family’s original use for the building that now houses the Cellar Door, Butchers Block Red is a structured, fruit-driven & medium bodied wine - a crowd-pleasing style, that offers excellent value for money. Each parcel is recognised when blending and each varietal is vinified & aged individually in French oak barrels before the final blending process. Shiraz adds generous mouthfeel, Grenache the spice and cherry-like sweetness and Mourvèdre the backbone, savoury edge and fragrance.
