Glandore Estate Wines was established in 2005 after the procurement of the original Brokenback chardonnay vineyard on Broke Rd. From day one the aim of Glandore Estate wines has been to produce wines of great character, regionality and style from the traditional varieties known in the Hunter Valley. This has been achievable through the strict selection of some of the Hunter Valley’s most distinguished old vine vineyards. Thinking out side of the square we have also started to forge ahead with new and exciting varieties to the Hunter Valley such as our superb Tempranillo.
Our winemaking style is all hands on, from hand picking right through to the hand operated basket press, quality without compromise and a winery that is designed specifically for small batch production of the very best parcels of fruit
From another fantastic vintage in Hunter Valley in recent years comes our 2018 Regional Series Shiraz.
A deep ruby red in colour the nose shows fantastic complexity with aromas of tobacco, aniseed and cinnamon spice. dusty new oak shrouds the fresh fruit aromas of a plum coulis.
The wine is medium bodies on the palate with a silken mouthfeel until the fine, ripe tannins arrive and coat the front f the mouth. Juicy fruits of red plum and cranberry delight before moving to a soften, clean finish.

Intense aromas of orange marmalade, savoury fig jam and cold pressed honey are all vying for the lead on your nose though marmalade is the strongest contenders.
The palate is medium bodied and again those marmalade flavours play a strong role. As well as creamy fresh figs to round out the fruit profile.

Enjoy this wine with some beautiful hard cheeses, a rich and savoury pâté or an orange based dessert. Just make sure your wine is the sweetest thing on the table!

With these delightful characters and that mouth-watering acidity we recommend pairing this wine with a fresh and lively Salmon Gravlax. Serve with some thin slices of fresh, cold radish & white onion.
