White Label Chardonnay Hunter Valley 2022

Our White Label Chardonnay is very much in the style of Chablis where we keep the oak on the down low and let the fruit and texture of the wine shine through.

The fragrances that decant from the glass are incredibly intense. Fruit aromatics of tinned peaches and honeydew melon are fresh, clean and competing with marked floral blossoms and hints of spicy cinnamon quill.

The sensory adventure continues in the mouth. The soft and silky palate is light and refreshing with melon fruits, golden delicious apple and orange pith flavours fighting for your attention. There is also a creamy mid-palate that comes from ageing on yeast lees for the past six months.

Drinking really well in its youth and that was the idea. Enjoy now and until 2024.

In writing these notes Georgia (Assistant Winemaker) took it upon herself to take one for the team and enjoyed a bottle at home.  In the kitchen, she crafted a superb match of burnt butter and home grown sage with spinach and ricotta hand rolled tortellini. Call the winery for the recipe.

White Label Rosé 2022

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. A radiant rose gold that captures the sun as it sparkles in your glass.

It is all about the red fruits with our 2022 Rosé. Strawberries, raspberry lollies and hints of dragonfruit can be enjoyed on the nose. While the soft and extremely approachable palate shows generous mouthfeel and sensual phenolics that grip the palate and cry out for some food. Super dry and crisp on the finish with just a hint of citrus, the wine is well balanced and perfect to share with friends and family alike. Enjoy this wine in it's youth and be ready for the next release in 2023!

Marry up this Rosé and a light, fresh prawn and mango salad with a dressing of lime zest, coriander, chilli and olive oil to see sparks fly.

Black Label Elliott Semillon 2022

2022 provided us some challenges but it is quite often in the wet years that Semillon shines the brightest here in the Hunter.

An aromatic and attractive nose of lemon sorbet, cumquat and grassy highlights are a delight to the senses. They are generous and playful as the appear from the glass and are looking incredibly clean & fresh.

There is some generosity to the mid-palate of the 2022 Elliott allowing elegance and richness to the wine while the zesty lemon citrus and crisp acid provide ample flavour and a talcy texture to the finish.

Like all Semillons in great years, this wine will cellar well. Enjoy today and for the 12-15 years.

A fantastic wine by itself but you can never go wrong with fresh Merimbula oysters. Their creamy and saline flavours pair brilliantly with young Semillon.

White Label Sangiovese Hilltops 2021

Chianti by another name, when in Italy, and an increasingly popular wine style on the Australian winescape. After only 9 months in oak our Sangiovese has retained that vibrant bright cherry red colour of youth.
Aromas of fresh cherries on the nose are bolstered by earthy umami aromas and a shadow of earthy beetroot relish. There is a depth of aroma here that is beguiling. The palate shows medium weight with a viscosity that allows it to flow gracefully around your mouth. Dusty tannins and pure red fruits of cherry and red plums make this a delight. Best served around 16oC – 18oC to see this wine at its best. Drinking well over the next 5-7 years.
Cured meats like Prosciutto di Parma or San Daniele bring a balance of saltiness, sweetness, and fat – ideal for such a wine. A well-balanced duck or venison ragu would also be a great match.

White Label Shiraz Hunter Valley 2021

Not surprisingly, this is a very early bottling of our Hunter Shiraz but when the winemakers had pulled the wine out of barrel for a routine tasting they were stoked with how vibrant and silky the wine was. Bottle it now was the call and here it is. So much fruit!! An amazingly bright and youthful wine with mountain loads of fresh red fruits and rich characters of delicious dark plums.

The wine is medium bodied like a true Hunter Shiraz should be and the fine and slightly dusty tannins are just beautifully counter punched by all those delicious red fruits that well up on the palate. Juicy red fruits of dark plum, fresh raspberries and cranberry are lavished upon you before moving to a soft, silken finish. 

Drinking beautifully now as this wine is all about those delicious fresh fruit characters. The wine will cellar in the short to medium term. Drinking well into 2026.

This is the perfect everyday glass of wine that you need....everyday! Enjoy this wine by itself but if you were to match it with a flavoursome San Choy Bao you will not be disappointed. Believe us, it works.
