2004 Nepenthe Vineyards Tryst Red Adelaide Hills

Watsons Wine Cellar HK$85

Cabernet Sauvignon 73%, Tempranillo 17%, Zinfandel 10%。
很特別的Blending, 就是法西美的結合。
顏色猶如墨汁, 烤果仁和cherry糖果的香味,
口感大多是木桶的味道, 也有點點辛辣,
直到餘韻才顯現酸度, 不是我喜歡的風格。

Official Information:
Nepenthe: described by Homer in The Odyssey as an Egyptian herbal drink so powerful that it eases grief and banishes sorrow from the mind. In 1994, the Tweddell family purchased a premium property in the sub-region of Lenswood in the Adelaide Hills. Proven varieties such as Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc were planted, as well as interesting varieties such as Zinfandel and Pinot Gris. Peter Leske (formerly with the Australian Wine Research Institute) was appointed Chief Winemaker.

In the backdrop of the cool heights of the Adelaide Hills, we started producing some soul reposing potions of our own: uncompromising wines of outstanding quality and internationally recognised distinction. Wines that, strangely enough, have been impressing both critics and consumers with their varietal faithfulness and subtle Adelaide Hills nuances.

In 1997 Nepenthe acquired a property in Charleston within the Adelaide Hills and has planted a further 43 hectares of vineyard. Then in 2002 a 25 hectare vineyard was acquired in Balhannah (where our cellar door is located), and in 2005 Nepenthe acquired its latest vineyard, 38 hectares in Hahndorf, with room for further expansion.

Nepenthe also sources fruit from a variety of vineyards throughout the hills. Most fruit Nepenthe receives is managed by Nepenthe Viticulture, part of the Nepenthe Group. This company ensures that Nepenthe only receives the highest quality fruit, ensuring strict control of the grapes that make our award winning wines.
