Vineyard: The 2019 Shiraz comes from our Pothana vineyard at Belford. The Shiraz vineyard soils have red clay loam with weathered limestone sub soil. The vines are 22 years old, yielding only 2 to 3 tonnes per acre.
Winemakers notes: The fruit was warm fermented in traditional open vats and hand plunged. The wine was aged in older oak barrels for 12 months prior to blending.
Tasting notes: Hunter shiraz are medium bodied wines showing red berries, spicy fruit and soft mild tannins. The wines have the ability to age more that it's constitution often suggests. This wine is deep red in colour with purple tinges. The aroma is dominated by sweet berry and spice. The palate is medium bodied, showing fruit richness with peppery undertones. The finish is long soft and supported
Cellaring: This wine is ideal for consumption now and will cellar well for 2 to 4 years.
Food Accompaniment: This shiraz is ideal with hearty soups, char grilled meats and cheese
