Originating from France, Petit Verdot is a late ripening variety that suits Australia’s dry, sunny climate perfectly. Although it has long been used as a blending component, it is increasingly being given the chance show its true colours as a varietal wine.
The perfect wine with smoked duck, dumplings or smoked salmon. Cherry red in colour with a spicy aroma and tarry overtones. The palate is packed with fruit flavour with an earthy background, light tannins and soft acids finish the wine.
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.
The incredible 2018 vintage resulted in the first release of Sangiovese under the Little Gem label. Beautiful aromas of plum and cherry with an intensity not normally seen in Hunter Sangiovese.
Deep crimson red in colour with dry cherry and prune aromas. Savoury flavours dominate the palate which is medium bodied and finishes with a firm acidity accompanied by fine soft tannins typical of this variety.
They say Barbera is the most food friendly variety in the world. With its plush fruit characters of currants and blackberries and its soft, supple tannins this is a wine that is dangerously more-ish.
A kooky blend that really works! Two big varieties that come together seamlessly with aromas of cherry and cinnamon with balanced tannins, medium acidity and plush berries.
Barbera originates from the North West of Italy and Margan Estate Wines were one of the first to plant this red grape in the Hunter Valley. The 2019 vintage had perfect ripening conditions with dry, warm days resulting in beautifully ripe fruit.
The first release of Barbera under the Little Gem label from the fantastic 2018 vintage. Brooding aromas of blood plum and dark jubes. The palate is filled with delicious, plush fruit characters of currant and blackberry supported by warm, velvety tannins.
