Wild raspberry and dark boysenberry overlay sweet brown spice aromas.
The same berry notes frame the entry to the wine, leading to a textured mid-palate. Ripe textural tannins rise gracefully from the mid-palate to finish the wine. These are balanced by acidity and more berry fruit character.
Ironically, 'Templars Hill' refers to a 19th century temperance society established in Bannockburn in 1877, with the meetings taking place at the local inn, although we suspect that the name is more likely to come from this nearby meeting place rather than the moral attitudes of the local gold miners at the time. Today this is the site on which the Mt Difficulty Winery, cellar door and restaurant stand overlooking Felton Road.
