Tasting Notes

The Sleeping Dogs Dry Red is an example of the winemaker’s passion for crafting old world wine varietals using Australian grown terroir.

The blend is crafted from three separate varietals, Graciano (40%), Bonvedro (30%) and Mataro (30%), each sourced from a different Barossa vineyard.

Each varietal is individually vinified using hand plunging and 15 – 25% whole bunch inclusion. They are matured separately, in seasoned oak, before they are blended, fined and bottled. Try it!



93 Points Gary Walsh , The Wine Front

“This is a fascinating wine, with a different outlook on the Barossa. Dried cranberry and cherry, spice, something like fresh seaweed, and a little smoke or peatiness. Medium bodied, meaty and spicy with small sweet dried berries, light tannin, just right acidity and spicy interest through the finish. Such glossy fruit too. Ha ... s that almost Southern Rhone/Languedoc garrigue/dried herb thing going on. Not sure why, but it does. Love this wine. Can’t recommend it highly enough. Show more Show less
