Regional Series Late Harvest Semillon 2011

A dessert style wine that isn't as sweet as you think it is.

Classified as a dessert style wine, you would be correct in thinking that there is some sweetness here because there is.  However, to mix things up a bit we prefer to serve this wine at the beginning of a meal matched to some really strong, savoury cheeses.  The sweetness is balanced by the savoury cheese whilst the fresh fruit flavours and aromas of the Semillon really stand out and deliver the fresh fruit and lightness to the palate that always surprises.

So, head off to the cellar, grab one of those bottles of sticky that have been rolling around back there for ever and try it with some good cheeses.  Once you realise we are right, you now have to order some of ours.

Black Label DPJ Chardonnay 2018

An icon of the Glandore stable and from a generous 2018 Vintage this will be a wine for now and tomorrow.

Showing a bright straw hue and a complex nose of fresh French oak, white peach, cinnamon, hints of delicate florals and tease of a bouquet garni. The palate now is compact and tight with fantastic length but as this wine ages you will see its generosity open up with richness and depth. A lemon butter zest and stone fruits drive the palate and linger on for a long time.

This complex wine needs maybe a complex food match. We suggest a Chicken Tagine with preserved lemon and olives

Black Label Hamish Shiraz 2014

What many consider to be the Icon wine at Glandore, the 2014 Hamish Shiraz will without doubt exceed expectations for all.
A deep, sangre red this wine is full of concentrated power where no one character rules but the sum of all its parts make it a great wine. The nose is full of earth, black pepper and rich, concentrated red berry fruits that constantly evolve in the glass.
The palate shows a freshness of youth with hints of espresso coffee, dark chocolate, ripe fruit and outstanding balance. Full bodied and the with great structure this wine is our Icon Shiraz.
Definitely worth cellaring. 15+? We think so but see if you can do it. If not, make the effort, track it down and make a Wild Boar Ragu, served with a crunchy baguette and creamy rich butter.

Regional Series Gewurztraminer Hunter Valley 2019

A wine that is much easier to drink than it is to say but that’s what it is all about, right?
Fresh lychees, aromatic musk sticks and spicy cardamom aromas are all jammed in there and simply burst from the glass and into your nose.
The palate is very soft and supple with just a hint of residual sugar to balance the palate and create an exceptionally juicy wine. On the finish there is a fresh burst of flavoursome florals that leave the palate fresh and clean. Made to be enjoyed in it’s youth
The wine craves a bit of fiery spice. Try it with a spicy fish red curry on a bed of aromatic jasmine rice. This is when that slight touch of sweetness comes into play.

Regional Series Chardonnay Tumbarumba 2018

Cool climate Australian Chardonnay is as close to Chablis as you can get…with out actually going there and drinking Chablis, of course. Handpicked in the first cool rays of dawn amongst the hills of Tumbarumba, the fruit was whole bunch basket pressed before a cool fermentation and maturation in second use French oak puncheons (500L).
On the nose honeydew and stone fruit aromas are complexed by delicate white blossom florals and creamy vanilla. The palate is fresh and has just about the perfect balance from the front to the back palate providing great length. The finish is again creamy from the French oak but just a hint of grapefruit acidity cuts through to clean things up.
Serve this wine with a delicate Carbonara. Fry off garlic, onion and crispy pancetta. Remove from the heat stir through your fresh cooked fettucine, a handful of parmesan and a whisked egg. Add a splash of Tumbarumba Chardonnay to cut back on the creaminess and you are away.
