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
Glandore's Stunning Shiraz is winner for your stocking fillers this year! Wanting to impress with the best Kris Kringle gift? Then look no further!
Garnet red in colour and showing those savoury characters typical of Tempranillo, our 2014 looks every part of its Spanish contemporaries.
Charcoal and redberries are first encountered upon approaching the wine whilst a complex spice matrix draws the nose further into the glass. The savoury mid palate and dusty tannins persist throughout and provide a firm finish to the wine allowing for the most rich and spicy of food matches.
Lay this in the cellar until 2021 to see what it is capable of…or head down to your local small goods delicatessen, grab some Wagyu Bresaola, Capocollo and Ibérico ham and see what it can do now.
What better way to celebrate the silly season than a six pack of our Wonderful Ward! Matched perfectly with your favourite Christmas roast, it would be rude to not break out to pair with all your holidays festivities!
The 2014 Ward shows those lovely bass notes of Shiraz and high hats of Cabernet Sauvignon that make this such a unique Australian style.
Ripe Shiraz fruits are complimented by the rich, herbaceous Cabernet characters of black currant and tomato leaf and are well integrated with each other with 6 years of cellaring.
The tannins have softened somewhat but are still long on the finish and the sweet vanilla oak characters add depth to the wine. Full bodied and well-structured this is a wine for the cellar. A glass today wouldn’t hurt but drinking out to 2026.
Pitching the best of Glandore against one of the finest Prosecco’s coming out of Italy today will be a challenge for us.
Chloë is a Blanc de Blanc (100% Chardonnay) and has spent 12 months on yeast lees post-secondary fermentation in bottle to build complexity and richness. Crisp, dry, clean and with a yeasty complexity, this is a fantastic example of the Australian sparkling craft.
La Gioiosa Prosecco Superiore is fresh, soft and with a touch of sweetness to the palate. It shows great fruit with a long pleasing finish, but does it have what it takes to knock Chloë off her perch.
Both these wines are perfect for Christmas celebrations and you will receive 3 bottles of each to share and compare when you add this pack to your cart.
What more can we say about Pinot Grigio that hasn’t already been said? Not a lot. The wines are approachable and incredibly drinkable on a hot summers day. This is the most hotly contested of comparisons, but we feel we have the edge. What will you think?
As a style, Pinot Grigio is usually quite subdued on the nose, however, our Regional Pinot Grigio is bursting with intense white jasmine florals, enhanced by notes of fresh grass and cumquat, the wine simply draws you in. The palate is soft, generous & with some subtle cinnamon spice finishing with a great length.
Pinot Grigio thrives in the Sortesele vineyard, situated along the Adige valley in Northern Italy. The Santi Pinot Grigio has full and complex aromas of pears, exotic fruits and wildflowers. On the palate, the wine has generous, soft but lively fruit with firm flavours, good acidity and a long finish.
Terrific little 6 pack containing 3 bottles of each of these wines. Perfect for a summer’s day. Throw a box in your cart!
It’s Two vs One in the fantastic battle between Australia & Italy.
We love Sangiovese and of course Chianti, the birthplace of sangiovese. Our enjoyment comes from the rustic feel of this wine style. The Regional Series Sangiovese is earthy, rich and packed full of cherry flavours and aromas, it is mouth wateringly delicious.
The San Felice Chianti is a typical medium-bodied Chianti Classico with notes of classic cherry, raspberry and slight violet. The flavour is dry, with delicate tannins and a fresh acidity, put simply, delicious.
Dating back to the 14the century, Rocca Guicciarda is one of Barone Ricasoli's most storied vineyards. This wine shows classic (fresh, sappy, graphitey) yet contemporary characters in the best sense (clean, pure, textured). Silky and sweet with subtle oak and notes of dried tea, raspberry and cherry-pit outlined by fine, polished tannins.
Tough ask for Glandore to go up against two fine Chianti’s but what do you think? 2 bottles of each wine in your cheeky 6-pack when you add it to your cart.
