This blend was pioneered in the Hunter Valley in the early part of last century and is currently enjoying a welcome renaissance. Elegantly structured, the blend provides a wonderful complexity with the rich earthy tones of Hunter Valley Shiraz with the vibrancy of Pinot Noir.
Sangiovese is one of the oldest known varieties in the world. This Sangiovese is a perfect example of this accessible, ready to drink style; perfectly medium bodied with red fruit flavours and a deliciously savoury finish. TROPHY - 2017 Winewise Awards.
They say Barbera is the most food friendly variety in the world. We agree - with its plush fruit characters of currants and blackberries and its soft, supple tannins this is a wine that is dangerously more-ish.
Tempranillo is a Spanish variety that is very well suited to the Hunter Valley. Varietal character of green olives, spice and a hint of tobacco with lush liquorice and cherry fruits. Tempranillo (from the Spanish temprano, meaning early) is a relative newcomer to Australia, and is capable of producing a variety of styles depending on climate and winemaking technique. The 2017 Tempranillo is a wine that is powerful yet elegant, showcasing how well suited this variety is to the Hunter Valley.

Hunter Valley (60%) and McLaren Vale (40%). The savoury flavours of Hunter Valley shiraz merge with the rich, plum fruit of McLaren Vale. A great easy drinking style.
This Shiraz is from dry-gown 49-year-old vines, producing an elegant, fruit driven wine. It is bright cherry red in the glass with aromas of dried herbs, violets and cherry vanilla. The palate is medium weight showing lovely red berries, with a juicy persistence of flavour and silky soft tannins.
Distinctive floral notes of violets and potpourri, the 2016 vintage has provided a pretty, perfumed red and blue fruited frame, and a lengthy, supple tannin profile. The deliciously intense mid palate provides some awesome current drinking appeal.
