Black Label Fireball Cabernet Merlot 2014

Sorry - this product is no longer available

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.

Regional Series Shiraz Hunter Valley 2018

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 arrive 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.

Black Label Ginger-Rose Shiraz Magnum 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.

Black Label Hamish Shiraz Magnum 2016

Showing spades of colour, this looks to be another cracking Hamish in a long line of Cellarhand favourites.
Time in oak gives this wine a savoury complexity on the nose. Dusty oak of fresh cut and charry woodfired timbers are the first to greet the nose. Slowly, but satisfyingly, the clean red fruits start to show up and intensify.
The palate is full bodied with mouth filling fruit intensity. The creamy oak and lavish tannins give amazing structure to the wine and a long and enduring finish to the palate. As always with Hamish, the 2016 has great cellaring potential but we think closer to 10 years than 15.
The eye of the fillet holds the greatest intensity of flavour and texture so that is our pairing. Cook it your way but medium rare is our suggestion.
