The Sweetwater Shiraz is true to form with its distinctive floral notes of violets and potpourri. Concentrated yet decidedly medium-bodied, deep red and blue fruited frame, perfumed raspberry fruit. There’s beautiful depth of flavour and the tannins are fine.

Gary Walsh

Boysenberry, blackberry, dried raspberry, nougat vanilla oak, some spice and subtle earthiness. Rich fruit, cocoa and nougat sweetness, frozen berry acidity, supple but kind of granular tannin sweeps it along, and the finish is plump and succulent. Quite come-hither, but a good expression of Hunter Shiraz.

A contemporary parlance of Hunter shiraz: blueberry pie, violet and iodine. Floral. Very. Mid-weighted and sassy. An easy ride across early to mid-term drinking

A good tint of purple in the colour, and a sweet blueberry raspberry cherry aroma, the palate slightly gritty with a trace of sooty, smokiness or char. Medium to full-bodied, a good wine, supple and approachable now.
