2019 Tawarri Shiraz

Single Vineyard Range

2019 Tawarri Vineyard Shiraz

Variety:  100% Shiraz
Region:  Upper Hunter Valley

Tasting Notes

Sited at the top reaches of the Hunter Valley, high on the slopes of the Great Dividing Range at an altitude of 460m. This isolated site benefits from rich basalt soils and a cool, dry continental climate; the result is a Shiraz showcasing such wonderful depth of colour, fully saturated core of crimson and dark scarlet, plus vibrant purple and deep blue at the rim.

Florals of violet and jasmine float above deeper aromas of briar and eucalypt, ripe black cherry and raspberry fruits. Cool-climate accents are present too, adding spicy wisps of white pepper and sage – all building extra dimensions of vigour and freshness 

The palate shows the essence of its terroir – ripe black cherry and raspberry delivering beautifully concentrated fruits over velvet-soft tannins. Savoury flavours of red cherry and aniseed provide lift and vigour, combining with the subtle textural notes of oak-spice.

Wines like these have the structure to age for 10 years or more, yet the fine tannins are seductive already, and 5 years in bottle should be enough reward.

Drink: Now to 2030. 160 dozen made.

2019 Bainton Shiraz

Single Vineyard Range

2019 Bainton Vineyard Shiraz    

Varieties:   100% Shiraz      

Vineyard:   Bainton Vineyard

Region:      Fordwich, Hunter Valley

Vine age:   Vines planted in 1923, 1942 and 1955

Tasting Note                                       

A heritage listed vineyard site with blocks planted in 1923 -1955, dry grown on deep, dark gravels of composited sandstone. Grown by the Bainton family, this old-vine Shiraz has dense colour and deeply packed rich flavours with great structure and power.

Colour: dense purple to scarlet, with flecks of deep-fushia at the rim.

Aromas: blackberry and anise swirl with spicy lift, jaffa and cola with hints of cranberry, oak spices of vanilla and clove.

Palate: very deep and dark: inky black cherry - cola at the core with super-ripe black fruits from blackberry through dense black currant to liquorice. The solid power is bonded to deep muscular tannins of almost tongue-staining espresso-like savouriness, reinforcing the inky blackness with gentle grip and carry onto the exceptionally long finish.

Drink: Now – 2030.

2017 Forres Blend

2017 Forres Blend

Variety:    91% Cabernet Sauvignon 9% Cabernet Franc
Region:     Hilltops and Hunter Valley
Vineyard:  Freeman and Peter Drayton Vineyard

Tasting Notes     

Colour is dense red-crimson with a bright hue of blue-purple.

On the aroma, Cabernet Sauvignon is sovereign, an aromatic cascade of blackberry with cassis-like intensity and depth, brightened with the characteristic Cabernet Franc flair of raspberry and herb-like aromas of lavender and gun-smoke.  

Cabernet Sauvignon dominates the palate too with glossy back fruit richness of significant depth, contributing delicious tannins that deliver gravelly persistence and structure.

Cabernet Franc adds its distinguished flair from start to finish, lifting the palate as it does the aroma, gifting hints of raspberry and pomegranate and then herb fumé with its authentic bright lightness.

The 2017 Forres Bend is all about a perfect Cabernet partnership delivering true fruit harmony and expression, uniting the aristocratic richness of Cabernet Sauvignon with vibrant Cabernet Franc energy.

Drink: Now to 2029.
Food Match: Venison, gamey meats and lamb

2019 Hunter Valley Semillon

2019 Hunter Valley Semillon

Variety:     100% Semillon
Region:     Pokolbin, Hunter Valley
Vine Age:  Planted in 1968

Vineyard : Keith Tulloch Estate

Tasting Notes

This Semillon has classic fine aromatic signatures - ripe lemon with traces of perfumed lime, and pretty aromatic hints of white flower. On the palate, varietal lemon-zest flavours rule, showing stunning clarity and deliciously detailed elements - like kaffir lime in lemon juice - finishing with apple-crunch brightness and minerally length. As usual, this wine shows lithe texture and vibrant persistence, conferring wonderful pedigree and potential.

There is great drinking enjoyment now with opportunity for cellaring ahead. Beautiful harmony will begin to develop within 1-2 years, while 5 to 10 years will elevate this  youngster into a classic Hunter Semillon.
