About The Wine

The White Wolf of Cumbria Red is a Jared Dixon's all-purpose red blend built from Tempranillo, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, and Petit Verdot.

It fits right in the modern, juicy red wine category. Jam packed with sweet blue fruit and spice - it's hard to see anyone not liking this.

It's a more approachable style of 'Bordeaux blend', with the smooth and spicy drinkability of Tempranillo taking centre stage.

The 2018 release is beautifully packaged and downright scrumptious to drink.

About Jilly Wines

Jared Dixon is a lone ranger on his own mission in the New England wine region.

His wines are made from interesting varieties grown on unique vineyards, sites he classes as ‘undiscovered gems.’ His winemaking is extremely hands-off, allowing the full expression of the fruit to be the focus of every wine. They are fun, don't take themselves too seriously and have a distinct energy about them.

Jared is one of Northern NSW's most exciting and impassioned young winemakers. Where he takes his idiosyncratic label from here is anyone's guess.

Critic Reviews

The Wine Front

"Fragrant red of forest berry fruits, sweet spice, herbal notes, rose petal characters and some earthiness in the mix too – perfume and palate in synch. From the lovely start you segue to a sloshy textured palate, though a  building chew of tannins helps shape things and fresh acidity ties the wine together well. Overall, a satisfying, vibrant red of bright flavours and good sense of ‘energy’. Lots going on, including high drinkability. Charisma plus." - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)
