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 arivve 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 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.

Regional Series Nebbiolo Hilltops 2019

Nebbiolo is a thick-skinned grape variety and while the colour in the glass is a bright cherry red, it is translucent. However, lurking in these thick skins are tannins and these give the wine its fantastic structure.

The wine is light to medium bodied on the palate with sweet fruits of cherries and blueberries backed up by firm tannins. Combine this with a crunchy acidity giving the wine length and you have a wine screaming out for a protein laden dish to suit.

Fantastic to drink as a young wine so enjoy over the next 2-3 years but it will last a few more than that.

Protein doesn’t always have to be a cut of meat. Grab a timber board, add rich pork sausage, creamy prosciutto, fresh burrata, a slice of pecorino, a few chestnuts and a handful of olives. 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.
