‘H’ Martinborough Merlot/Cabernet 2008 and 2009

17-Jul-2012
When Bill Benfield and Sue Delamare made their last wine in 2006, Martinborough lost one of its more iconclastic wines. Their Bordeaux-varietal based wine, though first made in the early days in 1989, became regarded as unusual in a Pinot Noir dominated region. However the spirit and fruit lives on. Hiroyuki Kusuda made a wine from Benfield & Delamare fruit in 2008, and the Benfield & Delamare fruit continues also in Heather Simpson's ‘H' wines. Heather bought the Oxford Street property belonging to Bill Benfield and Sue Delamare in 2008, and also purchased grapes from their other property on the corner of Cambridge Road and New York Street. Bill Benfield made the ‘H' wine in 2008, and Heather made the 2009 wine with Bill's guidance. Heather supervises all the viticultural work.
