Regional Series Fiano Hunter Valley 2019

As lovers of Italian wines styles, we are very excited about our first Italian white. Fiano originates in Campania and is also widely grown in Sicily.
A fresh, rich white showing peach and citrus characteristics. The palate is opulent, with beautifully integrated textural phenolics. The wine has similarities to a dry, pear cider, without the fizz. The acidity ‘duck tails’ on the finish coming in tight and crisp leaving the palate clean and dry.
This wine is made to be enjoyed in its youth. Drink while young.
Keeping within the region of Campania, Fiano is a fantastic match to slightly acidic dishes like tomato-based pastas. None are more famous from the south of Italy than Puttanesca. Buon Appetito.

Regional Series Rose Hunter 2018

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 this Summer.
Delicious red fruits of raspberry, strawberries and just a hint of plum are the hero’s on both the nose and the palate. So juicy and lip-smackingly good, you’ll hardly believe how good it is. Bone dry with ZERO sugar left after ferment, everything is about the fruit on this one. Clean and fresh with just a hint of texture from the grippy acidity on the finish helps to keep things tight and will hold this wine in good steed when paired with food.
At a recent lunch with Cellarhand Members we were lucky enough to have Pan Seared Kangaroo, pepperberry dressing, fresh raspberries & native cranberries.

Regional Series Shiraz Hunter Valley 2013

Hunter Valley Shiraz is a unique and special gift to the wine drinking world and this wine is the perfect example of over 150 years of winemaking in the region.

The nose is packed with earthy and savoury characters whilst the red fruit aromas and spicy pepper characters add to the complexity of the bouquet. Aged in new and old French hogsheads, the influence from these barrels is subtle whilst remaining influential.

The palate is a great example of what a fine Hunter Shiraz should taste like. Again the oak provides depth and complexity to the fruit characters of the wine. The generous tannins are well rounded and the medium bodied palate allows for each of these characters to be experienced within the wine.

This wine will age beautifully into the future and will reward those patient enough to tuck away a few for the future.

Regional Series Merlot Orange 2014

A good Merlot can be enjoyed every day and the way the plum and raspberry fruits come screaming out of the glass, this could be your everyday wine.

You will experience those same fruit characters from the nose on the palate, as well as the soft mid-palate weight of the wine. Maraschino cherries start to show up and the soft, silky tannins just draw out the palate leaving you lip smackingly satisfied.

Your Regional Merlot is just entering its prime drinking time and will continue to reward for the next couple of years. This weekend it would look awesome when served alongside grilled lamb cutlets and a tzatziki dipping sauce.

Regional Series Chardonnay Hunter Valley 2018

Modern Australian Chardonnay winemaking is all about balance. Each factor has to shine. The fruit, the region and the winemaking all play an important part and should be respected. We fermented around 20% in old French oak to give roundness and body. The remainder of the wine was fermented in stainless steel to keep the wine fresh both on the nose and on the palate. There is about 5% new French oak on this wine but it is just a side note adding a layer of complexity to the freshness.

When we blended the components together we achieved the complexity we wanted from the oak whilst still paying homage to the variety and the wonderful Hunter Valley region. The 2018 Regional Chardonnay from fruit picked on the Glandore property is looking the goods now and over the next several years.
We think silky handmade fettuccine with Chicken Cacciatore accompanied by a rocket and parmesan salad sounds like a pretty good match.
