Deep crimson with purple hues.
Intense spice and pepper on the nose combine with rich berry aromas.
Rich fruit flavours of black cherries combine with firm tannins to provide a medium-bodied style with great length on the palate. A well-balanced wine, consistent with the classic Hunter Valley style of Shiraz.
Careful cellaring will see this wine develop beautifully over the next 25 years.
The production of this wine is limited to 250 dozen. In 2017 we selected the best barrels from o number of sites, in on effort to produce a wine that will not only drink well in its youth, but hopefully, will be a classic after a few years in the cellar. Whilst still being in the traditional Hunter medium bodied style, this wine shows significant depth of fruit and weight that will hold it in good stead for future years. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do!
