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.
Perfectly suited to big flavours and lots of spice! Roast beef, barbecue, stews, chocolate and fruit will team beatifully with a great Shiraz.

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 cellaring of 15 years. 14.5% Alcohol.
