Overview & Tasting Notes

The 2013 vintage is a blend of our top vineyards, sourced from the red volcanic soil strip that runs through the Weinkeller, NVC and Short Flat Vineyards, with an average vine age of 50 years. This is a typical Vat 9 from a good Hunter vintage. Bright purple in colour, the nose is clean and consists of intense berry fruits with subtle lift from the new large oak barrels. The palate displays a wine in great balance, with sweet fruit being its primary focus, followed by supporting tannins, clean savoury complexity, well balanced acid and persistent fruit length.

    Plump ripe berries, pretty and floral with a kiss of vanilla, brown spice, milk chocolate and aniseed, and of course there’s a little earthiness. Medium bodied, fluid and charming, perfect acidity and gentle round tannin, length is spot on – superb. Sings. A mighty release. Up there with 2007 and 2009 for quality.
