Hot dry summers here in the Hunter provides perfect ripening conditions for super ripe soft medium bodied red wine. Our 50 year old 1 tonne to the acre vineyards on the 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.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Partial carbonic maceration results in a complex but approachable red wine with velvety smooth tannins. Intense blue fruit flavors, framed with subtle oak ends with a crisp lingering acidity.

Winemaker Notes
The 2017 Hunter vintage produced outstanding quality wines that we are very excited to share. The hot dry ripening conditions provided us with clean, ripe flavoured fruit with firm tannins. These grapes were selected from our Fordwich Hill vineyard, a small 7 acre block within our 200 acres of estate grown fruit. The wine was placed in a mixture of 1 and 2 year old French oak barriques for 12 months.
Food Pairing Notes
Lamb backstrap with parsnip puree and rainbow carrots
