2017 was an exceptional vintage in the Hunter Valley. Sourced from the Old Hillside vineyard’s mature 50 year old vines (previously owned by the Stevens family). Fermentation occurred in stainless steel open top vats before transfer to mostly newer French oak casks (2700Lt) for 15 months maturation. Medium to full bodied with a lively, intense purple colour. Black cherry, rapsberry and fresh, spicy flavours dominate the palate with a vibrant, fresh acidity that make the wine a wonderful example of the modern, balanced style of Hunter Valley shiraz.

James Halliday

A radically different bouquet with aromas of black fruits, black olive, French oak and earth leads into a vibrant dark berry palate. A truly fascinating wine, at the moment polarising opinions. It does have one more trick up its sleeve: a mouthwatering, sweet and sour (in the best sense) finish and aftertaste.
