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.
We love our Pinot but we know we have to travel further afield for our hit and this little beauty comes from Tumbarumba. Made by Liz Silkman, this is so varietal with aromas of dark glazed cherries and hints of strawberries, the oak plays a supporting role allowing the fruit to speak for itself.
A single vineyard wine grown at Sweetwater Ridge in the lowerHunter Valley. The 2018 is true to form with its distinctive floral notes of violets and potpourri, within a perfumed red and blue fruited frame, and a lengthy, supple tannin profile. Staff pick !
Vibrantly aromatic in its red berry, savoury and earthy perfume. Great concentration of dark berried fruits, with a taut tannin profile that extends right through the length of the palate.
Sourced from the famous dry-grown Cote d’Or vineyard in central Pokolbin. Exceptional depth of character, featuring dark blue fruits, Turkish delight and spicy notes. Outstanding value for a single vineyard Hunter Valley Shiraz.
Kiss Shiraz is the pinnacle of Andrew Thomas' range and is something of a Hunter Valley Shiraz benchmark. Rich, powerful cassis fruit with classic structure and balance. Quite simply ... elegant and utterly seamless.
Hunter Valley (60%) and McLaren Vale (40%). This is a great fruit-driven style that is simply a good, tasty drop. The savoury flavours of the Hunter Valley merge with the rich, plum fruit of McLaren Vale.
A wine of seamless elegance and class that drinks magnificently now, and will reward careful cellaring. Quite intentionally in the lighter end of the medium bodied spectrum, but definitely punches well above its weight.
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 capable of producing a variety of styles depending on climate and winemaking technique.
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.
