The ATR Wines Hard Hill Road Nebbiolo is focused and complex with a great depth and tight structure. Flavours of cherries and plums, cedar, spices, hints of mushrooms, with spicy, chocolate, leathery and earthy undertones. The concentrated flavours are matched by dense, but supple tannins that lead into a wonderfully long, vibrant finish.
By combining global winemaking experience with a regional flavour, ATR is bringing a bold and pioneering winemaking approach to the cool-climate Grampians.
Breaking the mould with cutting edge blends from alternate varieties and a modern approach to traditional varieties, ATR’s wines are a contemporary reflection of their place in the Australian bush.
Continuing 160 years of Great Western winemaking heritage but focussed forwards to create modern wines that surprise with their combination of complexity, approachability, age-worthiness and value.
Harmonious vineyard practices, small batch production with minimal intervention create wines with a vigorous focus on structure, balance and elegance, not just on flavour.
Getting out of the way to not cloud this visibility through winemaking tricks or heavy-handed processing, the personality of ATR’s wines reflects the vineyard, not the winemaking.
