Regional Series Shiraz Hunter Valley 2018

From another fantastic vintage in Hunter Valley in recent years comes our 2018 Regional Series Shiraz.

A deep ruby red in colour the nose shows fantastic complexity with aromas of tobacco, aniseed and cinnamon spice. dusty new oak shrouds the fresh fruit aromas of a plum coulis.

The wine is medium bodies on the palate with a silken mouthfeel until the fine, ripe tannins arrive and coat the front f the mouth. Juicy fruits of red plum and cranberry delight before moving to a soften, clean finish. 

Drinking beautifully now and will cellar in the 7-20 year range.

A wine perfect for a rich and savoury Bolognese pasta. Buon Appetito.

Regional Series Hunter Valley Rose 2021

The wine is beautifully aromatic and packed with red summer fruits of strawberries and raspberries. There is a floral rose water character on the nose that reminds us of indulgent Turkish Delight and finishes with a sherbety hint waving farewell.
The palate takes us to the south of France where dry, crisp Rosé’s are the order of the day. The wine has a fantastic balance, and those summer fruits dominate the medium bodied palate. There is a light dusting of phenolics that give texture to the wine and a kiss of acidity on the finish cleans up the palate and leaves you salivating for more.
Pair with a shared board of cheese, antipasto, cured meats and savoury nuts.

Regional Series Tempranillo Hunter Valley 2017

2017 was a cracking year in the Hunter Valley and you can see it in this wine. Just check out that amazing colour.

On the nose there are aromas of a creamy berry brulee, cranberries and fresh dark fruits. Second use oak shows through with some lovely toasty notes whilst there is just a background of wet river stone.

Medium bodied on the palate with lively and juicy fruits. It is absolutely mouth-watering. The tannins are there, but they are light and play a secondary role to all that fruit. Plenty of crunchy acidity on the finish that will pair well with oils & natural fats. Cellar in the medium term, 5-7 years.

You couldn’t do any better than char-grilled chorizo. Straight off the grill and into your mouth. Follow with a taste of Tempranillo. Olé!

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.

Black Label Ginger Rose Shiraz 2015

The Ginger Rose Shiraz is a crowd favourite amongst our loyal fans and the 2015 will take things to a new level. Sourced from a single vineyard site in Murrumbateman, this is a wine to be savoured.
Elegant red fruits complexed by aromas of chocolate, pepper and Asian spice are found on the nose. The palate is medium bodied, as expected, showing great line and length with a high level of fruit intensity. The soft tannins and drive of the fruit give this wine an amazing length. Enjoy now but drinking until 2025. Maybe more…
With that Asian spice influence we suggest Asian glazed spiced ribs served with sautéed Chinese vegetables and soy.
