pokolbin estate venue

The style of Pokolbin Estate Vineyard wines is of elegance yet are powerfully structured. These wines are capable of maturing, rather than just getting old. Our wines will not bludgeon your taste buds with high alcohol, short chain oak-derived tannin, port-like flavours or overt fruitiness as found in some. They are vinous, with carefully balanced acid, tannin and fruit. They will improve at least until they are five years old, and in most cases, far longer.

In the vineyard, we make a concerted effort to match the practice to the terroir. All vines are hand pruned; handpicked and carefully tended to ensure the best quality fruit is obtained. Yields are kept low, and irrigation, while installed, is used purely as a tool to ensure optimum quality. Download PDF about Cellar Door Tasting.
