About

This is the return tried and true style of Hunter Valley red.

Some of the region’s, and indeed the country’s, most iconic wines have been made from blending these two varieties.

There’s something about the way Shiraz and Pinot Noir work together in the Hunter. The earthy and savoury characteristics of the Shiraz are bolstered and complemented by Pinot Noir’s freshness and beauty.

It’s a wine style that is unique to this part of the world which has fallen out of vogue in recent times but this is a top example from Hunter Valley stalwart winemaker, Andrew Leembruggen.

With 94 points from both James Halliday and Gary Walsh, enthusiasts for the great “Hunter River Burgundies” of yesteryear should be chomping at the bit to get this in the cellar.

For this wine, the best is yet to come.

What It Tastes Like

“Raspberry and cherry, dusty cinnamon spice, earth and coal-like bass notes and floral highs. Just medium bodied, bright minerally acidity, spicy red fruits, fan of fine grained tannin and a clean finish of good length. Has a bit of X-Factor and no shortage of charm. Needs a year or two in bottle to unfurl, but there’s no mistaking the quality even at this early stage of its life.” - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)
