The property now comprises 60 hectares of vineyard - planted to sixteen different grape varieties - with 2000 tonnes crushed each year. While the Sunraysia and Riverland districts are best known as the biggest grape-growing areas in Australia, Trentham stands alone as the only small, family winery there specialising in growing varietal grapes and producing high quality varietal wines. Most Riverland vineyards are owned by blockers - they produce the fruit for other wineries to turn into wine - and the pressure to over-water in order to improve yields has been increasingly felt in recent years of grape shortages. This Shiraz is deep red in colour with cherry, cassis, mocha and mint aromas. These aromas follow onto the palate to compliment flavours of white pepper, sweet plum and vanilla. With a long, rich finish; this wine is truly a delight.
