2022 The Butcher | Frank Wynyard Cut


This wine is a life celebration of our family patriarch, Frank Wynyard Butcher, a horticultural scientist who throughout his career was attracted to experimenting with diverse and innovative plant species. Through this fascination with research, he imbued a love for something different and hence our quest for alternative grape varieties; which is a hallmark of this red blend.

Varietals: Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon & Nebbiolo

New Oak: 25% new

Bottled: January 2023

Vegan Friendly: Yes

With this wine, we add a modern twist to an age-old Australian blend to create a rich, flavoursome red wine. The Syrah delivers the fruit, the Cabernet adds a savoury focus and the Nebbiolo brings it all together with elegant structure.

[2018 Vintage] – 93 Points by Nick Stock for JamesSuckling.com, Oct 2020

“Rich ruby hue. Blueberry and mocha aromas. Dense fruit on entry with a ripe blackberry note, rich mocha characters add complexity and it glides with aplomb to a long finish. 90 Points.”
Stuart Knox, The Real Review. December 2023. [2022 Vintage]

“Three disparate varieties combined to make a complete if generous wine. It’s full of very ripe fruit, lots of tannins but it’s fleshy and open… 91 Points.”
Jane Faulkner, 2022 Halliday Wine Companion, August 2021 [2019 Vintage]

“Intense and deep ruby hue. Blackberry, tobacco leaf and iodine aromas. A deep and savoury palate that shows the art of blending. There’s character and complexity throughout with everything in balance. Great length and a bright, dry finish. 94 Points.”
Stuart Knox, The Real Review, March 2021 [2019 Vintage]

“This has an attractive, complex nose with ripe dark berries, terra cotta, pepper and cloves. Dried flowers and leafy notes, too. The palate has a smooth, blackberry, dark-plum and blackcurrant core. Ripe yet restrained style here. 93 Points.”
