Brangayne The Tristan 750ml
Brangayne The Tristan, a blend of three classic varieties, is grown on the Ynys Witrin vineyard and is vibrant red in colour with purple hues. It displays elegant varietal fruit, with underlying leafy briar and berry aromas, and nuances of tobacco leaf and fine integrated French oak. The palate is long and supple, enhanced by the blackcurrant and cherry characteristics of Shiraz and the complementary softness of Merlot, and completed by a fine soft tannin finish.
Bouquet | Berry, tobacco, oak.
Palate | Blackcurrant and cherry
Alcohol | 14.0%
About Brangayne of Orange: The "Brangayne" and "Ynys Witrin" vineyards lie on the north eastern slopes of the extinct volcano Mount Canobolas, near Orange in New South Wales, one of the highest and coldest grape districts in Australia. Often under snow in winter and mild in summer, the cold climate offers ideal conditions for the production of premium grapes, combining generous fruit flavour, acid and length in wines of intensity and elegance. The long ripening period and the deep, rich volcanic soil, position Brangayne among the few vineyards in Australia capable of producing distinctive cold climate wines of high calibre. Brangayne came into the Hoskins Family in the 1930s, and for sixty years, Edgar and Winsome Hoskins and later Don and Pamela Hoskins grew apples, pears, peaches and cherries on the property. Then, in 1994, the fruit trees were replaced by wine grapes. The vineyard today is managed by David Hoskins.
