Black Label Elliott Semillon 2019

As the Summers get hotter and the winters drier, fruit yields are down. We were very fortunate to secure a small parcel of Semillon from the famed Maluna Vineyard to blend with the fruit off the Glandore Estate.

The blending of these two vineyards has created a very aromatic, fresh style of Semillon. Aromas of lemon pith and curd are highlighted by hints of tropical pineapple. The generous palate shows a sherberty texture with a long length of flavour and a grapefruit like finish.

Not one of our longest living Semillons but should comfortably cellar for 5-7 years and still show those lovely aged characters.

Semillon works so well with oysters but try with a lemon cured kingfish ceviche dressed with finely chopped spring onions and lemon zest.

Regional Series Fiano Hunter Valley 2019

As lovers of Italian wines styles, we are very excited about our first Italian white. Fiano originates in Campania and is also widely grown in Sicily.
A fresh, rich white showing peach and citrus characteristics. The palate is opulent, with beautifully integrated textural phenolics. The wine has similarities to a dry, pear cider, without the fizz. The acidity ‘duck tails’ on the finish coming in tight and crisp leaving the palate clean and dry.
This wine is made to be enjoyed in its youth. Drink while young.
Keeping within the region of Campania, Fiano is a fantastic match to slightly acidic dishes like tomato-based pastas. None are more famous from the south of Italy than Puttanesca. Buon Appetito.

Regional Series Merlot Orange 2014

A good Merlot can be enjoyed every day and the way the plum and raspberry fruits come screaming out of the glass, this could be your everyday wine.

You will experience those same fruit characters from the nose on the palate, as well as the soft mid-palate weight of the wine. Maraschino cherries start to show up and the soft, silky tannins just draw out the palate leaving you lip smackingly satisfied.

Your Regional Merlot is just entering its prime drinking time and will continue to reward for the next couple of years. This weekend it would look awesome when served alongside grilled lamb cutlets and a tzatziki dipping sauce.

Regional Series Shiraz Hunter Valley 2013

Hunter Valley Shiraz is a unique and special gift to the wine drinking world and this wine is the perfect example of over 150 years of winemaking in the region.

The nose is packed with earthy and savoury characters whilst the red fruit aromas and spicy pepper characters add to the complexity of the bouquet. Aged in new and old French hogsheads, the influence from these barrels is subtle whilst remaining influential.

The palate is a great example of what a fine Hunter Shiraz should taste like. Again the oak provides depth and complexity to the fruit characters of the wine. The generous tannins are well rounded and the medium bodied palate allows for each of these characters to be experienced within the wine.

This wine will age beautifully into the future and will reward those patient enough to tuck away a few for the future.

Regional Series Tempranillo Hilltops 2016

No longer considered an alternative variety on the Australian Wine Scene, Tempranillo has fast become an incredibly popular wine style.

Our 2016 Regional Series Tempranillo is a beautiful garnet red in colour exhibiting aromas of rich cherry pie with hints of cinnamon spice. Like all our Tempranillo’s, we love the complexity that spicy paprika adds.

The palate is firm with a tannic bite balanced by sweet mid-palate blue fruits. The wine has a great length and is ready to be served with a robust food pairing.

To mix things up, replace the traditional Toulouse Sausage in a Cassoulet with a spicy chorizo to get a fantastic match.
