2023 Special Release Shiraz Pinot Noir


Trophies and Medals

The Shiraz components were selected from specific blocks that showed the characters we desired for this wine. Blocks within Old Hillside, NVC and the Short Flat. The Pinot Noir was sourced from our HVD Vineyard.
In the lead up to the 2023 vintage, there was an abundance of rain in spring which gave great soil moisture heading into the dry months of December and January. The harvest period was relatively stress-free without any adverse conditions such as rain or heat. This vintage has produced well-balanced, complex wines with fruit purity and is considered to be an exceptional Hunter Valley vintage.
This blend of Shiraz (90%) and Pinot Noir (10%) is a modern interpretation of the great ‘Hunter River
Burgundy’ styles made famous in the mid-1900s. Both varietals were vinified and matured separately before being blended in July and then bottled in August 2023.
The wine has an almost electric purple colour with an attractive aroma that jumps out of the glass.
The palate is juicy and slippery, with mouth filling fruit, soft tannins and bright acidity.

Alcohol – 13.5%
