Shiraz

The unique style of Hunter Valley Shiraz has worldwide recognition for its soft savoury medium bodied characters. We have close to 30 hectares of old vine shiraz which produces at around one tonne to the acre. We generally pick it all together and drain off 20 % to make our rose which then concentrates the balance of our Shiraz. Our Margan Shiraz is matured in 4-5 year old oak barriques that soften the wine without adding oak flavour and tannin. This allows the wine to concentrate on its unique Hunter Valley flavour and tannin structure. Typically medium bodied with savoury spice and long soft tannins. The Aged Release is only produced in the very best vintages and is a concentrated version with lots of tannin to help the ageing process and new French oak maturation whilst our White Label Shiraz uses stems and new French oak for added texture and tannin.

The Hunter Valley has some of the oldest productive Shiraz grapevines in the world.Warm summers in the Hunter Valley provides perfect conditions for ripe, medium bodied red wines. Our 50-year-old vineyards grown on the red volcanic earth of the Fordwich Sill gives us plenty of opportunities to select our best block of shiraz to hand pick, ferment, and bottle on its own under our prestigious White Label.

These 50-year-old vines are the only example of this unique combination in the Hunter Valley. The grapes are picked and vinified together giving a wine with loads of character. Concentrated black forest fruits, liquorice, spice and earth. Dusty tannins add structure and the finish is long and lingering.

Our BC4 block is one of 8 blocks of old clone Shiraz vines, located within our Fordwich Sill vineyards planted on red volcanic clays. Consistently year to year our BC4 block produces a juicy, fruit-forward style of Shiraz with plush purple fruits and soft tannins. The intensity of fruit stands out from our other vineyards, in 2018 we decided to bottle a small parcel of this block as a single vineyard, single block wine to capture the vibrancy of fruit that the BC4 block produces.

The 2014 vintage was a once in a lifetime vintage. Perfect ripening conditions provided grape chemistry with perfect balance. This gave ripe fruit flavours with lots of acid and fine tannin structures. These grapes were selected from the volcanic soils of the Fordwich Sill.

Ripasso is inspired from the Northern Italian winemaking tradition of 'repassing' a previous year's wine from barrel over fresh pressed skins from another wine. The wine picks up richness and body, a degree or two of alcohol and additional tannins. We only do this in outstanding vintages.
