Experience the bold and silky flavours of the 2021 Wild Duck Creek Yellow Hammer Hill. This brooding garnet red wine boasts intoxicating dark boysenberry aromas and a palate full of blue fruits like blueberry, plums, and tart red cherry. Partly matured in concrete vats, this wine is designed to highlight the pristine fruit flavours. Enjoy now or cellar for up to 15 years.

"Sees French and American oak barrels plus some of the wine hangs out in concrete vats. The kinda entry level deal here.

It’s such a fun wine to drink, all slurpy and loose knit, lucid in red and black berry fruitiness, ripe, round, smooth, supple, a jelly meets currants meets jube thing going on. Elements of herb and spice, some sweetness for sure but a sappy bitterness in tannin is pleasingly there and a light dusting of clove-cinnamon spice keeps some other elements in play. Heady, overt, party time gear for big red lovers, but done well. For me, probably a bit much to get a few glasses down in its lush style, but you can see the pedigree and balance as an observer. Neck oil."
