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.
