About The Wine
This is the top of the tree in the Usher Tinkler range, the very best of the best Shiraz that he has to offer.
A barrel selection chosen from his best old vine Shiraz blocks, it's a bold and powerful depiction of the Hunter Valley from the exceptional 2018 vintage. The level of concentration and depth that the Reserve shows would comfortably place it amongst the the best of the region.
A wave of velvety black and red fruit sheathed in fine, well-judged Frenach oak, it's a wine that will mature very well over th next decade or more.
