A classic medium-bodied Hunter style. Deceptively ‘rich’ with a savoury pepper and charcuterie flavour mixed in good proportions with ripe red and black berry fruits. Solid colour and intensity start the wine off in the right direction, while the palate shows up-front fruit sweetness with our hallmark savoury crunchy tannins and fresh moreish finish.
Fermented in traditional hand plunged open vats and then matured in 4 year and older (2600L) French oak barrels. These French ‘Foudre’ casks serve to lift and freshen the fruit on the nose and palate rather than add any obvious characters of new wood. This wine is developed with a simple winemaking philosophy; choose the best fruit we can and gently encourage the savoury red fruit and soft tannins that the Hunter is famous for to shine through.
