Sourced from a small selection of our favourite shiraz blocks, the grapes were both hand and machine picked before fermentation in the traditional open top vats. The wine was then matured in older, large format French oak casks. These 2,700 litre casks highlight the fruit purity whilst making sure that oak isn’t the dominant character.

2017 HUNTER VALLEY SHIRAZ 96 points

A brother to the ‘18 Hunter Valley Semillon. Crushed and destemmed, open-fermented, pressed to large format used casks. This is a rich yet tightly managed wine, placing all the emphasis on fruit, precisely as it should be done, especially in a year such as this. If you buy it now - and you should - put no less than 50% in the cellar and have a glass on me, recalling it only cost $25. Gold medal Hunter Valley Wine Show.
