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.

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

Regional Series Tempranillo Hilltops 2016

No longer considered an alternative variety on the Australian Wine Scene, Tempranillo has fast become an incredibly popular wine style.

Our 2016 Regional Series Tempranillo is a beautiful garnet red in colour exhibiting aromas of rich cherry pie with hints of cinnamon spice. Like all our Tempranillo’s, we love the complexity that spicy paprika adds.

The palate is firm with a tannic bite balanced by sweet mid-palate blue fruits. The wine has a great length and is ready to be served with a robust food pairing.

To mix things up, replace the traditional Toulouse Sausage in a Cassoulet with a spicy chorizo to get a fantastic match.

Regional Series Shiraz Canberra 2013

Patiently matured in old and new French Hogsheads and Puncheons we want the oak to support, not dominate. The fruit within the matrix of this wine is both delicate and pure.

White pepper, cinnamon and clove all play a role whilst the palate remains medium bodied with great texture and structure. The sweet mid palate fruits show richness and freshness making this a very easy and approachable wine.

We think the flavours and structure of our ACT Shiraz make this the perfect accompaniment to duck. Duck doesn’t have to be an extravagant confit every time so for this wine we suggest a well-balanced duck ragu served with pappardelle.

Regional Series Shiraz Hilltops 2015

Things have just got serious. For one of our Regional Series/everyday wines, this is punching seriously above its weight.
Aromas of fresh figs and maraschino cherries are complimented by vanillin oak and hints of aniseed. Think Liquorice Allsorts. The palate is generous and mouth-filling with big, ripe fruit flavours of blackcurrant cassis and ripe, red fruits. The tannins just manage to poke out through the avalanche of fruit whilst toasty French oak leave a savoury finish to the palate.
Serving Suggestion? BBQ beef short rib. Marinate the ribs in a smoked hickory sauce, with a dash of Hilltops Shiraz just to perfect the marriage. Serve with your fingers and a large napkin.
