Racy and restrained, this Gewurz is made in the modern, dry style. It displays lifted aromas of musk, rose petal and lychee with delicious lime flavours on the palate.
Suzanne Little was previously winemaker for Rosemount Estate where she was responsible for their range of premium Chardonnay. Her aim with the Little Gem is to make an approachable Chardonnay that is balanced and delicious.
This chardonnay is picked early to retain natural acidity and citrus flavours. Unique structure, blended with a small portion of unoaked wine to increase the fresh lifted fruit on the palate. The result of a 5 year discovery of Hunter Valley Chardonnay.
Silkman won Best Chardonnay in Australia for their 2014 Reserve in the Halliday Chardonnay Challenge and this vintage follows on beautifully. Very much in the contemporary style of Hunter Chardonnay; elegant, restrained French oak, lean mineral fruit characters, persistence of flavour.
The Littles' signature rosé style is made from Sangiovese grapes producing a unique, silky yet savoury wine. Made in the drier, European style, this is the perfect lunchtime 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.
Late ripening, vigorous and very fussy about soils Nebbiolo seems to have found a home in Australia on the red volcanic soils of the NSW Hilltops region.Light in colour, high in both acid and tannin and exhibits a haunting array of aromas including tar, dried cherries, violets and roses.
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.
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 capable of producing a variety of styles depending on climate and winemaking technique.
