About The Wine
This is a brave alternative style Hunter Valley Shiraz.
The fruit for this is grown on Usher's organically-managed vineyard, picked for freshness and brightness and sent to bottle super early without any additions of sulphur along the way.
This shows an electric, vivid purple/blue hue in the glass. It screams freshness and early-drinking joy. With a fistful of berries and a rawness that drags you back to the glass, it's a refreshing showcase of Hunter Shiraz stripped back to its bare bones.
