Trentham Estate’s River Retreat range of wines is based on an initiative dedicated to raising awareness of the wetlands of the Murray Darling Region.

Deep red in colour showing aromas of dark cherry and plum with a touch of black olive; soft and mellow with flavours of plum and mulberry. A touch of oak and soft ripe tannins make this an easy drinking wine with seamless flavour and length.
