Reserve Shiraz

Reserve Shiraz

$40.00 / bottle

Shiraz is a classic Hunter variety, reflecting the natural adaptability of the shiraz grapes to the new world and the Hunter in particular. Grown in red clay soil over limestone conglomerates, on a north east sloping hillside, the Tintilla Shiraz vines enjoys ideal growing conditions.


After a very good growing season the night harvested grapes were cold soaked to extract maximum fruit and phenolics, then open fermented until almost finished fermentation. Fermentation is finished in New (about 30%) and old French and American oak barrels were used for malolactic fermentation and subsequent ageing. After 16 months in oak the wine was bottled and stored before release.

Tasting Notes

The wine has a deep purple hue and follows on the nose by voluptuous dark berries with cedar and sweet tar. Full complex palate with sweet dark berries, a great mouth fill that lingers with a great tannin structure and should age very well. This is one of those wines that was a real pleasure to make, all that was needed was a steady hand and time to bring out the best that Hunter Shiraz can be.
