About

Winemaker Matt Burton likes to spread his wings farther afield than just his home in the Hunter Valley. Shiraz from Canberra District and Hilltops in NSW have become staples of their range and Gundog are all the better for it. This comes from the Freeman vineyard in the Hilltops. It's the second take on the same Shiraz that Matt made from this vineyard in 2015. This saw an extended time in oak, released with more muscle and sinew than the earlier released No 1 Shiraz. It received 94 points from Campbell Mattinson and is a wonderful example of Shiraz from this part of the state.

What it Tastes Like

"A highly aromatic release. It’s a floral, perfumed introduction to a well-expressed palate, the wine’s dark cherry and chocolate flavours offset by savoury five-spice notes. Sweet and savoury at once. Fine-but-assertive tannin pulls it all in tight. It’s all quite exemplary." - Campbell Mattinson (The Wine Front)
