Black Label Elliott Semillon 2018

Sorry - this product is no longer available

Blessed with another fantastic Vintage in the Hunter, our 2018 Elliott Semillon exhibits effects climate may have in producing two very different wines from the same place.

We picked the fruit slightly riper in 2018 than 2017 and this shows on both the nose and palate. Aromas of lemongrass, sherbet and subtle tropical hints give truth to the riper vintage. While on the palate we see a more generous mouthfeel, a roundness to the finish but also with that tangy, citrus acidity we love about Semillon. Not going to age as long as the ’17 but much more approachable in its youth.

What is the match? White fish is perfect. A simple citrus pan-fried snapper with a fresh rocket and parmesan salad drizzled with olive oil and lemon juice will be fine.

Black Label Ginger-Rose Shiraz 2014

From our Black Label range comes a serious crowd favourite. Marry that with a fantastic 2014 Vintage across all of NSW and you have an absolute showstopper of a wine in our Ginger-Rose Shiraz from the ACT.

Ruby red in colour and exhibiting aromas of intense red fruit, creamy vanilla oak and nuances of spiced fruit cake, there is a lot going on here. The palate is a complete surprise; medium bodied, delicate and silky with soft, fine tannins that are long on the finish. Like all cool climate wines, there is an underlying power that belies its origins. Cellar 8 – 10 years.

Something a bit more challenging to accompany this wine would be a char-grilled radicchio, provolone and red wine risotto.

Regional Series Shiraz Hilltops 2015

Things have just got serious. For one of our Regional Series/everyday wines, this is punching seriously above its weight.
Aromas of fresh figs and maraschino cherries are complimented by vanillin oak and hints of aniseed. Think Liquorice Allsorts. The palate is generous and mouth-filling with big, ripe fruit flavours of blackcurrant cassis and ripe, red fruits. The tannins just manage to poke out through the avalanche of fruit whilst toasty French oak leave a savoury finish to the palate.
Serving Suggestion? BBQ beef short rib. Marinate the ribs in a smoked hickory sauce, with a dash of Hilltops Shiraz just to perfect the marriage. Serve with your fingers and a large napkin.

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 Ward Shiraz Cabernet 2014

The Shiraz Cabernet Blend is unique to Australian shores and you could say we invented it. Our 2014 Ward shows those lovely bass notes of Shiraz and High Hats of Cabernet Sauvignon that make this such an awesome style. Ripe Shiraz fruits are complimented by the rich herbaceous Cabernet characters of black currant and tomato leaf and are well integrated after 23 months in French and American oak.
The young tannins are long on the finish and the sweet vanilla oak characters add depth to the wine. Full bodied and well-structured this is definitely a wine for the cellar. We are thinking 10 years plus but maybe longer.
Need a food match? Slow roasted lamb shoulder. You pick your favourite roasted veg.
