2007 ‘Alexander Munro’ Shiraz – Aged Release

2007 has proven itself as a great Hunter Valley shiraz vintage. Very low yields following on from the very hot 2006 vintage, ripened easily with only minor storm activity towards harvest. As a whole, 2007 vintage Hunter shirazes have an inherent completeness about them making them very approachable upon release, but also have the structure to reward cellaring.

BLACK was originally meant to be a one-off commemorative wine, the thinking being 2011 was a fantastic Shiraz vintage which coincided with our 20th release. 2014 came along and made us reconsider. 2014 just had to produce a BLACK.

2015 ‘XYZ’ Shiraz

The XYZ brand wines constitute modern styles of Hunter Valley Chardonnay and Shiraz. New Generation wines. 2015 was a ‘difficult’ vintage. Our oldest and most reliable vineyard sources held up well and much of the fruit was de-classified into lower price point wines. We are delighted with the results of what we have.

2016 ‘Terracotta’ Syrah

Excess rainfall in 2015 prevented a release of ‘Hell Hole’ , ‘Terracotta’ and ‘Alexander Munro’ Shiraz, so 2016 was a welcome relief. Whilst not completely trouble free, the Valley’s older vineyards, with their deep roots produced high quality grapes if well managed. 2016 will be termed a ‘classic’ vintage.

2016 ’Hell Hole’ Shiraz

With far too much rainfall in 2015 to release a ‘Hell Hole’ Shiraz, or ‘Terracotta’ and ‘Alexander Munro’ for that matter, 2016 was a welcome relief. Not a completely trouble free vintage, but more typical and quite manageable. The old-vines again proving their worth.
