This wine has been produced from Shiraz grapes picked in late February from our Audrey Wilkinson Vineyard. The grapes were crushed and cold soaked for 6 days, then fermented for 10 days with pumping over twice a day. The wine was pressed and put to 100% French oak barriques and puncheons to undergo malolactic fermentation and maturation. The wine was then carefully blended, filtered and bottled under screwcap.

    A great drink now, well priced Hunter Shiraz with classic terroir characteristics.

    I’d recommend reading up on teetotaller, Audrey Wilkinson who took over winemaking duties from his late father, aged 15. He was somewhat of a pioneer of early wine technology. Fittingly, the winery is celebrating 150 yrs of excellent winemaking.

    A classic, med-bodied, dry red, with a rich colour & that sweet but earthy Hunter Shiraz nose. There’s even a nice overlay of florals too. The palate is clean and glossy. As dark cherry, boysenberry, chocolate, violets and earthen spice round out a very drinkable, easy-pleasing wine. I’m sure it’s a killer at the cellar door, and is well priced at $22.

    A Wozza 91.5/100 (3.5/5.0 stars) from me.
