Additional Information
Vintage Conditions

The 2018 vintage will be regarded as a great vintage in the Hunter Valley. With well below average rainfall through Winter and Spring budburst was two weeks early and in the Summer period, the dry conditions continued. These consistently warm, dry days resulted in the driest year on record and one of the earliest harvests in history and some of the most concentrated fruit flavours we’ve seen.

  1. Wozza

    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.
