Founded by Jack and Moya Murphy as a farm, which included plantings of citrus, vegetables and grapes for fortified wines, the property was later replanted to specialise in varietal grapes. The vines flourished in the rich red loam over limestone soils, nurtured by water from the Murray River.
The first vintage was produced in 1984, using only six-tonnes of grapes. Jack Murphy instilled his knowledge of viticulture to his sons Anthony and Patrick, who established Trentham Estate in 1988.
The winemaking philosophy at Trentham Estate has always been to produce high quality varietal wines at an affordable price, with an emphasis on full fruit flavour and palatability. Trentham Estate encompasses alternative varieties, celebrating its Irish and Italian heritages.
The grapes are picked and crushed at optimum ripeness to produce the perfect flavour, and the experienced winemakers use various winemaking styles to create the award-winning wines Trentham Estate is known for.
The wine list is comprised of more than twenty varieties including traditional favourites such as sauvignon blanc, chardonnay, pinot noir, merlot, and shiraz, as well as a range of alternative varieties including pinot gris, vermentino, moscato and nebbiolo. Wines of limited bottlings are also available at the cellar door only. With a wine list this extensive, the vast range of wines from Trentham Estate has something to please everyone.
⇐ 2020 Estate Pinot Gris
This pale green pinot gris has hints of pear and baked apple on the nose, accentuated by honeysuckle and light tropical fruits. The palate is slightly sweet for a full round and soft wine, best enjoyed with a cheese platter or spicy Asian dish.
⇐ 2019 Estate Pinot Noir
Plum and warm spices give a vibrant aroma to this cherry red wine, the taste of berries and subtle French oak on the palate with a soft and silky finish. The 2019 Estate Pinot Noir is beautifully paired with a variety of dishes, including antipasto, light tomato-based pasta and duck.
⇐ 2020 The Family Sangiovese Rosé
The nose is full and vibrant with aromas of strawberries and cream, rose petals and lavender. Juicy red fruits and layers of rhubarb dance on the palate, bringing the wine to life with a dry finish. It is best enjoyed chilled with an antipasto platter, seafood or an Asian dish.
⇐ 2017 Reserve Heathcote Shiraz
This rich shiraz has a lovely and luscious combination of pepper, plum, dark cherry and chocolate on the nose, translating seamlessly to the palate with a fruity sweetness balanced by fine mocha oak.
