Range Margan Aged Release

This range showcases the cellaring potential of iconic Hunter Valley Semillon and Shiraz. These varieties, when grown in the Hunter are renowned for their unique style, elegance, capacity to age and are true celebrations of terroir. The wines are single vineyard in origin, made in a traditional style and are built for long term cellaring. Small volumes of the White Label Semillon and Shiraz are meticulously cellared for five years and then re-released as wines showing beautiful aged complexities.

Margan Aged Release Semillon

Beltree Vineyard was planted in the 1930’s by the Elliot family and is typical of a dryland Belford Semillon. Light alluvial soil on yellow clay  creates wines from the Semillon variety of lean citrus austerity.

 

Toasty, vanillan hints wrapped around a strong acid backbone are typical of the style as it ages. Citrus fruit and mineral finish to balance the emerging middle palate.

Margan Aged Release Shiraz

The grapes for this wine were picked from forty year old vines growing on the red basalt volcanic clay of the “Fordwich Sill” on our Timbervines Vineyard.

 

With an average yield of only one tonne per acre the fruit for this wine was intensely concentrated in flavour.  This wine is of full bodied density and displays a subtle combination of spicy pepper and tar like characters.
