Established in 1997, Diamond Creek Estate is an award winning family owned and operated vineyard and olive grove. Diamond Creek Estate is situated on the northern slopes of Mittagong, around 120 kms south of Sydney, in the Southern Highlands region of New South Wales. The property for many years was dairy country, enjoys rich basalt soil, northern sun and although at an altitude of 680 metres, it has an unique topography, which leaves it relatively immune from frost. This creates an ideal microclimate for cultivating premium quality, cool climate wine grapes and the finest olives for extra virgin olive oil. The vineyard occupies around 15 acres and a similar area is dedicated to olive trees. The vines are subject to intensive management for improvement, hand pruned and leaf-plucked as required. They are personally tended, cropped for optimised yields to produce premium quality cool climate wine grapes. Diamond Creek Estate Wines are produced only from estate grown grapes. The region, although the newest recognized geographical indication, is fast being acknowledged as a premium cool climate area and this is consistent with our objective to produce first class wines that will compete with any in Australia and overseas.

Drank in 2007 after 1 hour of decanting. Very Funky Barnyard nose, but in the mouth tasted like mature classed Bordeaux: earth, leather, grilled mushroom, cassis. Really nice wine

Toasty warm earth offering lush cherry and boysenberry characteristics. Garnet color with firm tannins, olive and mint ascending a vibe toward Pinot Noir but with a full-blown, pedal to the metal, white knuckle explosion on the tongue!

Remarkably elegant, complex, ripe and concentrated, with a sweet plum and cherry accent to the spicy anise, cedar and light oak shadings. With its relatively mild tannins it's tempting now, but worthy of cellaring into 2000.

Red-ruby. Bright aromas of cassis, tobacco, bay leaf, juniper berry, smoked meat and menthol. Juicy, youthful red berry in the mouth, with nuances of dried flowers and eucalyptus. Finishes with subtle fruit flavor and modest tannins. Very nicely balanced: not dry like some past vintages of this wine.

Earthy and complex - typical of this vineyard - with layers of clay, spice, berry and cherry; long and lingering on the finish. Needs time. Best from 2002.

Tight, tart and compact, but rich in flavor, with crisp, stemmy black cherry and wild-berry flavors. Turns firmly tannic. with an oaky, earthy aftertaste. Needs time. Best from 2004 through 2014.

Medium-weight, with pleasing cedar, currant and cherry notes and modest tannins...

Simply delicious, with an amazing amount of fruit complexity and tiers of currant, black cherry, plum and spice. Remarkably rich and concentrated on the finish. Better than when tasted upon release, last year.
