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 arivve and coat the front f the mouth. Juicy fruits of red plum and cranberry delight before moving to a soften, clean finish.
Drinking beautifully now and will cellar in the 7-20 year range.
A wine perfect for a rich and savoury Bolognese pasta. Buon Appetito.
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.
Pale and brilliantly clean in the glass our 2021 Elliott Semillon is lip smackingly drinkable!
Fresh, clean aromas of 'Lemonade' lemon, young honeydew melon and white must sticks are underlined by a flinty minerality on the nose.
The palate has a knife-edged line of grapefruit that also shows hints of tropical fruit flavours. Light and fresh on the finish with some talcy texture that dances across the palate at the very end.
Enjoy in it's youth or cellar until 2030. best enjoyed with the wondeful bounty from our oceans and seas. Oysters are always the perfect match to Semillon.
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.
There is just a dash of acidity on the finish that scoops up any residual sugar and leaves the palate dry and fresh.
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!
