Black Label TPR Tempranillo 2019

An absolute cracking wine from the superb 2019 vintage here in the Hunter Valley and arguably one of our best TPR’s produced to date.
Youth is definitely on this wines side with fresh fruit aromas of figs and black currants presenting from the glass. This is further complexed by enticing black tea, toffee, nutmeg and cinnamon spice and with just a hint of black olive tapenade. Yes, there is a lot going on here.
The palate is seamless with no gaps, peaks or valleys from the front to the back palate. Generous to a fault and beautifully balanced with fine dusty tannins providing superb structure. There is a creamy richness to the wine that rounds out the finish and leaves the palate gasping for more. Drinking beautifully now but will continue to do so for another 10-15 years with amazing complexity.
A wine that will appreciate working with some decent flavours. Low and slow would work well. Either in a slow cooker or on your backyard smoker beef short ribs, deliciously sticky and melt in your mouth is the order of the day.

Regional Series Tempranillo Hilltops 2021

This will be the last release wine under our Regional Series banner with all future wines in our new re-vamped White Label and it is more than a fitting farewell.

Dark red plums and delicious aromas of milk chocolate and cinnamon toast seriously leap out of the glass. This wine smells deliciously enticing and is the outcome of bottling this wine after only 7 months in old French barrels, retaining the purity of primary fruit.

The medium bodied palate is generous with crunchy acidity leading through to a fine coating of mouth filling tannins. The wines is very approachable but also has depth and character that is true to the ‘Crianza’ style of Spain this wine has been made for (short time on oak, bottled young). Drinking at its best when moderately young so enjoy over the next 5-7 years.

This is going to be a joy with food. May we suggest a Basque style pintxo (tapas) of Chorizo and Manchego on crisp, fried bread.

White Label Shiraz Hunter Valley 2021

Not surprisingly, this is a very early bottling of our Hunter Shiraz but when the winemakers had pulled the wine out of barrel for a routine tasting they were stoked with how vibrant and silky the wine was. Bottle it now was the call and here it is. So much fruit!! An amazingly bright and youthful wine with mountain loads of fresh red fruits and rich characters of delicious dark plums.

The wine is medium bodied like a true Hunter Shiraz should be and the fine and slightly dusty tannins are just beautifully counter punched by all those delicious red fruits that well up on the palate. Juicy red fruits of dark plum, fresh raspberries and cranberry are lavished upon you before moving to a soft, silken finish. 

Drinking beautifully now as this wine is all about those delicious fresh fruit characters. The wine will cellar in the short to medium term. Drinking well into 2026.

This is the perfect everyday glass of wine that you need....everyday! Enjoy this wine by itself but if you were to match it with a flavoursome San Choy Bao you will not be disappointed. Believe us, it works.

White Label Rosé 2022

Based on wines from the region of Provence in the South of France, we have created the perfect Rosé to enjoy on a beautiful sunny day. A radiant rose gold that captures the sun as it sparkles in your glass.

It is all about the red fruits with our 2022 Rosé. Strawberries, raspberry lollies and hints of dragonfruit can be enjoyed on the nose. While the soft and extremely approachable palate shows generous mouthfeel and sensual phenolics that grip the palate and cry out for some food. Super dry and crisp on the finish with just a hint of citrus, the wine is well balanced and perfect to share with friends and family alike. Enjoy this wine in it's youth and be ready for the next release in 2023!

Marry up this Rosé and a light, fresh prawn and mango salad with a dressing of lime zest, coriander, chilli and olive oil to see sparks fly.

White Label Sangiovese Hilltops 2021

Chianti by another name, when in Italy, and an increasingly popular wine style on the Australian winescape. After only 9 months in oak our Sangiovese has retained that vibrant bright cherry red colour of youth.
Aromas of fresh cherries on the nose are bolstered by earthy umami aromas and a shadow of earthy beetroot relish. There is a depth of aroma here that is beguiling. The palate shows medium weight with a viscosity that allows it to flow gracefully around your mouth. Dusty tannins and pure red fruits of cherry and red plums make this a delight. Best served around 16oC – 18oC to see this wine at its best. Drinking well over the next 5-7 years.
Cured meats like Prosciutto di Parma or San Daniele bring a balance of saltiness, sweetness, and fat – ideal for such a wine. A well-balanced duck or venison ragu would also be a great match.
