Black Label Fireball Shiraz Cabernet 2017

This is the clash of the Titans. The grip and structure of the Cabernet wrestling with the intense fruit and richness from the Shiraz. Neither dominates but they both have presence.

The wine itself presents as Cabernet to the nose on first glance. Leafy dark fruit characters complexed by graphite and black tea aromas give out to the savoury notes from grilled lamb and rosemary. Strange but true.

The palate shows the upfront sweet fruit from the Shiraz with a creamy macadamia flavour through the generous mid palate. There is a pleasant warmth from the intensity of the wine while the tannins from the Cabernet dig in on the way out. Drinking beautifully with some air now or leave in the cellar up until 2027.

Pair with lamb and rosemary. Maybe Greek style lamb shoulder, infused with garlic and cooked until it falls off the bone.

Black Label Ginger Rose Shiraz Viognier 2019

Our first release of Ginger-Rose since 2015 and with a 5% addition of Viognier to the blend, she is becoming a very elegant young lady.

The wine looks awesome in the glass, bright and ruby red in colour. The aromas from the glass are all about plums and dark berries, alluring florals and just a hint of sweet liquorice. The enticing French oak brings some deft savoury spice to the finish.

On the palate we see the true elegance that Ginger-Rose has now developed. Medium bodied with fantastic structure and length the generous fruit is tempered by the French oak, restraining the wine from becoming to extroverted. Spicy black pepper waves goodbye on a long finish that is supported by the ripe red fruits and young, fine tannins. Drinking beautifully now and well into 2026.

As suggested by our wonderful Trisha in cellar door, who is married to a Frenchman, medium rare eye fillet topped with a rich dose of foie gras. As it melts, so does your heart.

Black Label Hamish Shiraz 2017

The first of the stunning vintages in recent history here in the Hunter Valley. Wines are true to style from this region and the reds exhibit that perfectly. Just like our Hamish.
Fresh red fruits of dark plums and cranberries sing in harmony with the savoury spice of nutmeg, star anise and sandalwood shavings. Dark chocolate cocoa gives further depth to an intriguing nose.
The palate is a juicy cavalcade of moreish red fruits through the mid palate. The fine, dusty tannins evenly coat the palate giving support to the fruit and providing fantastic length and structure to the wine. Savoury coffee from the oak gives a parting salute on the end giving you a lovely savoury finish.

Drinking now and into 2027.

If slow and smoked is your thing, try Hamish with a slow cooked brisket. Both will melt in your mouth.

Black Label TPR Tempranillo 2018

The TPR throws out a bouquet of aroma! Plums, red and black currants, smoky oak and rich rolling tobacco assail the nose. There is such delight to be had that it just keeps drawing you in.
The palate is supple and soft with long fine tannins that grip and hold onto the mouth. The juicy fruits illustrate just how good 2018 was with purity and freshness while there is just a hint of sweet oak on the finish. This wine will outlive your patience to hold on to it. Drinking well now until 2032.
We could get all fancy on a food pairing but just get some bloody good hard cheese and a mouth-watering selection of charcuterie and enjoy.
