2013 White Label Shiraz
Warm summers in the Hunter Valley provides perfect ripening 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. Limited quantities of this wine are produced in only the best vintages.
