2019 WHITE LABEL FORDWICH HILL SHIRAZ
Hunter Valley Shiraz is a globally renown style generally lower in alcohol and with a more savoury fruit profile than many Shiraz from other Australian wine regions. It features a more elegant and medium bodied style with softer tannins and bright acidity. I select the grapes for this limited volume shiraz from the volcanic soil vineyard of the easterly facing Fordwich Hill. This aspect gets less direct sunlight and allows for the slower accumulation of flavours whilst maintaining the natural acidity of the wine.
Savoury Hunter Valley nuances temper powerful purple and black fruits. Bright, natural acidity allows this wine to be accessible straight away, however patience will see its complexity and depth evolve over the next decade or more. A favourite vineyard from an outstanding vintage.
