Gundog is one of the Hunter Valley's most progressive wineries with former 'Hunter Valley Rising Star' Matt Burton at the winemaking helm. Burton has been nominated for a swag of awards and collected many accolades in his career, his ability to look beyond the traditions of his home region for inspiration being one of his reasons for success. The Smoking Barrel Red combines his loves for both Canberra and Hunter Shiraz. "The theory was to marry the plum, blackberry and exotically spiced characters of the Murrumbateman Shiraz with the more savoury and earthy aromas of our old vine Hunter Shiraz parcels." This year's blend of 90% Canberra and 10% Hunter fruit has worked a treat. Campbell Mattinson called it an "Excellent style of sweet-savoury red.", and it is just a great example of a modern NSW red wine.

What it Tastes Like

Little whiff of smoke and dried meat, the deep blue fruits of Canberra with the savoury, earth tones of the Hunter, they get on like best buds. Some little floral tones in the high points of the aromas, as well. Smells pretty brilliant. Tastes just as good. Slick, sweet and savoury. Delicious.
