More Information

Mark Walpole has graduated from being arguably one of Australia's greatest viticulturalists to become one of its greatest vignerons. His interest in cool climate viticulture led him from his home in the Ovens Valley to the elevated Beechworth plateau at the top of the Escarpment above the Murmungee basin.

The site was planted to Cabernet Sauvignon and a small amount of Merlot in 1997 on the lower North West facing slopes, followed by Pinot Noir in 1998 on the upper North East facing slopes at an elevation of 570 meters. In more recent years after working with fruit from this block small areas have been grafted to Shiraz, Tempranillo, Sangiovese, Chardonnay and Petit Menseng.

Whilst many Australian Tempranillo's are made for immediate drinking, the Fighting Gully Road examples are modelled on the wines of Ribera del Duero in Spain, and have the capacity to age for well over ten years. Fermented using indigenous yeasts the wine spends two years in 40% new French barriques from the forest of Never. Firm, fine grained powdery tannins coat the mouth with rich black fruit. Released as a Riserva wine after four years of aging.
