Carillion 2018 Expressions Shiraz Pinot
A classic blend that showcases the harmonious union between Hunter Valley Shiraz and cool-climate Pinot Noir from Orange. Juicy and approachable, this wine has abundant flavour with bright aromas of red fruits and spice and a juicy palate of mulberries with soft, savoury tannins.
Established in 1994, the Hunter Valley vineyard, Tallavera Grove, enjoys a warm coastal climate specializing in the traditional local varieties of Semillon, Verdelho, Chardonnay and Shiraz. The Carillion Vineyard, located on the slopes of Mt Canobolas, personifies the hype for cool climate wines coming out of the Orange region. The key to this area is the cool to cold climate and high altitude, meaning it enjoys an extended growing season with plentiful sunlight hours. Red/brown volcanic clay loams on light-medium clays provide the base for growing premium grape varieties suited to the region.
