The Hochar of this year is bright ruby red in colour with red fruits,
plums, sloes and cherries on the nose and palate. This balanced and
elegant wine combines vibrant fruit on a medium body with soft
tannins, good acidity and cellared well, it will keep for several years.
The Hochar Père et Fils 2016 is a blend of Cinsault (50%), Grenache (35%) and Cabernet Sauvignon
(15%). The grapes were fermented between 27 °C and 29 °C with maceration in cement vats,
followed by 6 months in French Nevers oak barrels.
It was blended in the winter of 2017/18 and bottled during the summer of 2018
Ruth says “Cherry, cinnamon and oak, full bodied with an elegant finish.”
