WINEMAKING NOTES

At the heart of Manjimup’s famed Seven Day Road is the home of Western Australia’s first truffière, The Truffle & Wine Co. Established in 1997, surrounded by vineyards, orchards and majestic rolling hills our estate produces rare and delicious black winter truffles (Tuber melanosporum) and award-winning cool climate wines. Our winemaking is based at Truffle Hill, a unique vinyard where the vines grow beside the Hazel and Oak trees of the trufferie. Pungent French black truffles are produced from the roots of these trees, where in the winters, our dogs are our greatest hunters. Our wine labels are an ode to our truffle hunting dogs.

FOOD PAIRING

Delicious with all things Italian, pizza, meatballs and pasta! Also great with most meats just add a hint of roseamry, thyme or oregano!

TASTING NOTES

Deep purple with violet hues and brilliant clarity, this wine has the aromas of mulberry and licorice plum pudding overlaid with toasty oak derived vanilla providing the perfect varietal intensity. The style is medium to full bodied and complex, with oak in balance with the fruit. An intense palate, showing a generous array of dark berry, mulberry and plum fruit flavours. Well integrated oak adds complexity with appealing sweet cedar, cloves and vanilla flavours in support of the fruit. Soft acid and rich, mouth coating tannins complete the structure, which complement the delicious berry fruit finish. Potential aging of up to 10 years. 14.0% Alcohol.
