Ad Hoc: Ad Hoc is an assembly of varietal wines for any occasion, each wine sourced from its best-suited region in Western Australia.
From Margaret River, to Pemberton, to the regions of the Great Southern, we've grown up and worked amongst the vines. Our knowledge of these regions and relationships with other grape growers enables us to find the best vineyards for each grape variety, and this is what we show with through Ad Hoc.
We've travelled long to find the path of least resistance, enabling us to show you great quality at great value for money.
Ad Hoc are "go-to", dependable wines for any occasion, as characterful as their labels.
The Vintage: Yields were lower than most due to wind and rain during flowering and the Indian summer that usually occurs in this region not eventuating. The fruit that was picked was of excellent quality resulting in some crisp and refreshing wines.
The Winemaking: Fruit was hand-picked and sorted. Fermentation was carried out in small lot fermenters. Moderate extraction was aimed for, thus ensuring vineyard characters were fully expressed. The wine was then aged in new and one year old oak for 6-8 months.
The Wine: Aromas of red earth, ground black spice and dark berries. The palate presents fine, silky tannins, juicy fruit flavours of blueberry and dark cherry with undertones of spice.
Drink With: Slow cooked meats, hard cheese.
Cellaring Potential: 8 years.
