Black Label DPJ Chardonnay 2018

An icon of the Glandore stable and from a generous 2018 Vintage this will be a wine for now and tomorrow.

Showing a bright straw hue and a complex nose of fresh French oak, white peach, cinnamon, hints of delicate florals and tease of a bouquet garni. The palate now is compact and tight with fantastic length but as this wine ages you will see its generosity open up with richness and depth. A lemon butter zest and stone fruits drive the palate and linger on for a long time.

This complex wine needs maybe a complex food match. We suggest a Chicken Tagine with preserved lemon and olives

Black Label TPR Tempranillo 2016

Our 2016 TPR appears quite ‘soft’ in the glass. It looks more like a traditional Rioja out of Spain than an Australian Tempranillo.
The aromas on the nose are a medley of savoury spice. Fresh ground nutmeg and powered cocoa lead the way with toasty oak in support. With time in the glass we see the fruit open up and begin to shine.
The palate is quite lively with rich, intense dark fruits, grippy tannins and soft acidity on the finish. There is a ‘meaty’ intensity about this wine giving it quite a savoury edge. Good in the cellar for around 5-7 years.
With those savoury flavours we suggest a dry aged, grass fed sirloin caramelised over hot coals. Pair with charred broccolini & crusty bread.

Black Label Cameleon Savagnin 2019

This wine looks amazing in the glass. Brilliantly polished, sparklingly clear and pale straw in colour. Simply stunning.

The nose is pretty and floral with ester aromas of pear skins and a creamy background that reminds us of “Milko” lollies. The use of Jura oak (Origin of Savagnin) has markedly enhanced the florals in this wine.

Like all past Caméléon’s there is a depth & complexity that is always about mouthfeel and texture which is well supported by yellow peach & toasted almond flavours. Drink now – 2026.

With a bit of extra body in the wine enjoy with Salmon dressed in a Ginger Soy and served with Asian greens.

Black Label Hamish Shiraz 2014

What many consider to be the Icon wine at Glandore, the 2014 Hamish Shiraz will without doubt exceed expectations for all.
A deep, sangre red this wine is full of concentrated power where no one character rules but the sum of all its parts make it a great wine. The nose is full of earth, black pepper and rich, concentrated red berry fruits that constantly evolve in the glass.
The palate shows a freshness of youth with hints of espresso coffee, dark chocolate, ripe fruit and outstanding balance. Full bodied and the with great structure this wine is our Icon Shiraz.
Definitely worth cellaring. 15+? We think so but see if you can do it. If not, make the effort, track it down and make a Wild Boar Ragu, served with a crunchy baguette and creamy rich butter.

Black Label Fireball Cabernet Merlot 2014

The second release under this auspicious title and certainly doing justice to the name that has been bestowed upon it.

Full bodied and rich this wine is more like something off the ancient soils of Bordeaux than the cool climate hills of the Orange region in NSW. The aromas from the glass are incredibly rich and exhibit dark fruits, spicy French oak & a hint of mint from the Cabernet.

The palate is generously supported but fine dusty tannins that give length and excellent body to the wine. The fruits are elegant and with a great depth of complexity arriving from maturation in oak puncheons.

This wine is a big step up from previous releases and would be well paired to a rib eye fillet, bone on, seared, oven baked and served with a red wine jus and seasonal greens.
