About The Wine
The Hark Angel is Hunter Valley Shiraz with the brightness and youthful characters dialled up to the max. It has a real verve and energy to it, much like its maker.
The wine is also a dedication to an organ donor who saved the lives of seven people, as well as bettering that of owner/winemaker, Ritchie Harkham.
Ritchie referred to the donor as his “Hark Angel”, and this wine serves as a memoriam to their life-saving legacy.
Ritchie Harkham's wines are like no other in the Hunter Valley.
His minimalist, preservative and additive-free approach to winemaking has seen him develop into one of the true cult favourite wineries of the region.
The Hunter Valley is a difficult place to grow without chemical sprays but Ritchie has pulled it off with great success. He has set a new precedent for the way things can be farmed in this historic region.
The wines are raw, a little wild and sit outside the norm of the region. This is the Hunter Valley unplugged.
