With over 150 years of history, the Thousand Candles property spreads over 400 hectares of prime land. A place of vineyards, bushland, kangaroos, cattle in the pasture, creeks with eel, crayfish and waterfowl; tea tree, manna gum, candle bark, tree ferns and mountain ash. Stuart Proud has been managing the vineyards biodynamically since 2010, to promote health and balance in the soils, vines and grapes. The Nouveau Red is a blend of Pinot Noir and Syrah
Fresh scents of strawberry and red cherry have undercurrents of blood plum and spice. Flavours begin with soft red fruits and crunchy red plum acidity; developing towards black cherry, blackberry and clove-led spices. Silken-textured with a hint of tannin -this is totally moreish, with a juicy yet dry finish.
