2018 The Butcher | Thomas Hendy Cut


This wine is a celebration of our forefather, Thomas Hendy Butcher, who was a distinguished Master Brewer in Plymouth in the 19th century. His skills and success are an inspiration for us to continue our delivery of extraordinary ferments.

Varietals: Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon & Nebbiolo

Oak Regiment: 18 months

New Oak: 20% new

Bottled: January 2019

Here we combine the finesse of the Yarra Valley and the depth and richness of Heathcote. The Syrah delivers the fruit, the Cabernet infuses a savoury focus and the Nebbiolo brings it all together with elegant structure.

[2018 Vintage] – 94 Points by Campbell Mattinson, 2021 Halliday Wine Companion

“Yarra Valley/Heathcote. It’s a slightly burlier red than this blend might have you expect, but it’s well balanced, well made and looks set to go well in the cellar. Red and black berries, jubey aspects, florals, woodsy spices and malt. It’s not thick or heavy but it feels strong. 94 Points.”
Campbell Mattinson, Halliday Wine Companion, August 2020 [2018 Vintage]
