2017 Hard Hill Road Mule Variation

2017 Hard Hill Road Mule Variation

Inspired by the Tom Waits album of the same name, our Mule Variation is a blend of our most enigmatic red varieties: Nebbiolo, Tannat, Durif, and Shiraz. Like Waits’ music, our Mule Variation is an unexpected take on an otherwise regular theme, creating a surprisingly harmonious yet subtly powerful wine.

Each variety was harvested at optimum flavour intensity, combined in one open-topped fermenter and vinified with wild and inoculated yeast.

Focused, intense and complex. Blackberry, plums, dark cherry, with hints of cooking spice and a floral finish.

The slow and uninterrupted two-month fermentation created a uniquely complex structure and a massive array of flavours. A serious wine built to last.

A completely gorgeous nose with dark cherry, pepper, spice, liquorice and clove. The palate is cool and composed with an excellent supple core of dark fruit and bold framing tannin. Beautifully medium-bodied with good savouriness on the close. 92 pinots

96 Points - A blend of nebbiolo, tannat, durif and shiraz, says Richardson ‘inspired by the Tom Wait's album', and is a blend of his most enigmatic red varieties. Like Wait's music, Mule Variation is an unexpected take on an otherwise regular theme. The wine is supremely intense, yet medium-bodied rather than full-bodied, and the red, purple and black fruit flavours are all in harmony.
