Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.
Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.
Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.
Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.
Purple in color and of full bodied density this wine displays a subtle combination of spicy pepper and tar like characters which are typical of Hunter Shiraz. It is well structured and shows great palate length. The wine has soft tannins to allow for early enjoyment. However, it should continue to develop more complex flavours over the next three years with bottle age. The wine should cellar until at least 2020.
The grapes for this wine were picked from forty year old vines growing on the red basalt volcanic clay of our Timbervines Vineyard. With an average yield of only one tonne per acre the fruit for this wine was intensely concentrated in flavour. The drought vintage coupled with our use of 30% of the juice for our saignee has increased the concentration of this wine. The grapes were picked at full ripeness and were fermented under cool conditions using cultured aromatic yeast. After fermentation the wine was placed in older oak hogsheads for a period of eighteen months to allow it to soften and mature without gaining overt oak characters. The wine was bottled in January 2008
"Saturated ruby. Understated red berry aromas gain depth and power with aeration, picking up baking spices, minerals and dried flowers. Juicy raspberry and blackberry flavors are nicely concentrated and fresh, with good mineral snap adding vivacity. An elegant and persistent rendition of shiraz."

Like the state it's in, New South Wales, Hunter Valley is hot and the traditional grapes are Shiraz & Semillon. But Chardonnay has become a popular and very produced variety. The hot weather gets the grapes super ripe, which in turn makes most of the wines big and rich.
(seh-RAH/shee-RAHZ) It's a Smokin' Grape Syrah and Shiraz - same grape, different name. It's a popular and adept variety, growing in multiple regions and creating many different styles of wine. The home base of Syrah is the Northern Rhone, where it creates the exclusive wines of Hermitage and Cote Rotie. On the less pricy side, the Rhone makes Syrah-based wines in Crozes...Read More About Syrah/Shiraz
