Additional Information

Tasting notes-

Bright amber gold with copper tints. Fresh raisin fruit backed by a hint of grape spirit and aged oak characters rise from the glass. The palate is luscious and lingering with plenty of sun-ripened raisin fruit, with some vanilla and mature fruit. The acid balance and tannin from barrel ageing prevents the wine from being cloyingly sweet. Serve with blue cheese, plum pudding or after dinner with fresh coffee.

The history of Campbell

The Campbell family winemaking heritage began in 1870, when Scotsman, John Campbell vintaged his first wine from his \" Bobbie Burns\" vineyard. The venture prospered and by 1885 he had 15 hectares planted to vines. At this time phylloxera (a root sucking aphid), which had been infesting vineyards throughout the world, arrived in Rutherglen. Over the next decade, most of the Rutherglen vineyards were destroyed. Determined to maintain the business John’s son, David embarked on a program of replanting vines on phylloxera resistant American rootstocks and, by 1930 18 hectares of vines were flourishing.

In 1933, David’s son Allen, just 18 years old, took over the daunting task of managing the business through the Great Depression.

Allen and his wife Isabel diversified and developed the Winery, Vineyards and Farm through the 30’s and 40’s and by the 1950’s the estate totalled 28 hectares of vines. In 1961 Allen’s elder son, Malcolm took up the reins of responsibility, to be joined by his brother, Colin in 1968, upon completion of his winemaking studies at Roseworthy. In the ensuing years the brothers have pursued an uncompromising goal of quality in all aspects of viticulture and winemaking.
