Black Label Ward Shiraz Cabernet 2015

Sorry - this product is no longer available

Again, the great Aussie blend has come through with the goods. A deep red plum in colour, this wine simply invites you in.

Complex aromas of roasted capsicum, blackberry leaf and hints of menthol provide an intriguing nose. The palate is jam packed with rich, ripe fruit characters of black currants and ripe figs with just a hint of leafy greenness. The French oak tannins support and give length to a wine that finishes with rich mocha coffee and toast. Cellaring 7 – 10 years.

A bold wine needs something hearty. Whilst it doesn’t have a great name, a braised mutton stew with red wine and root vegetables in the slow cooker for 8 hours or so tastes pretty good.

Regional Series Hunter Valley Rose 2021

The wine is beautifully aromatic and packed with red summer fruits of strawberries and raspberries. There is a floral rose water character on the nose that reminds us of indulgent Turkish Delight and finishes with a sherbety hint waving farewell.
The palate takes us to the south of France where dry, crisp Rosé’s are the order of the day. The wine has a fantastic balance, and those summer fruits dominate the medium bodied palate. There is a light dusting of phenolics that give texture to the wine and a kiss of acidity on the finish cleans up the palate and leaves you salivating for more.
Pair with a shared board of cheese, antipasto, cured meats and savoury nuts.

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 Fireball Cabernet Merlot Magnum 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.

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.
