One of the great wines of Australia, Hunter Shiraz is powerful as it is subtle, with pure fruit flavours balanced by spice and earthy characters. We use different parcels of fruit from our family vineyards to create a regional style that can be enjoyed now or in the not-too-distant future.
On the nose, rich berry fruits, intense spice and pepper combine to enrich the aromatics. Black cherries framed with firm tannins and bright acidity provide a medium-bodied style with great length on the palate..
Spring rain bought great canopy development and growth across our vineyards. The 2021 vintage was marked by a cooler, ripening period that allowed for red wines that are elegant and have complex fruit characteristics.
This approachable style is perfect for enjoying between now and the next five years.
It’s a great choice for any days in in Y. But in all seriousness, you can never go wrong with anything that comes off the BBQ — think steak, burgers, and eggplant!
