The best Hunter Shiraz comes from old vines grown on the renowned red clay soils on the foothills of the Brokenback Range. The Tallawanta vineyard was planted in 1920 by the Elliot family and to this day produces some of the Hunter’s best Shiraz. The Shiraz vines are believed to be sourced from plantings brought to the Hunter Valley by James Busby in the 1830s.
These 100 year old vines produce tiny quantities of intensely flavoured fruit creating a wine of great balance and length, showcasing the vineyard and region. Medium bodied in style with an unmatched ability to age in the bottle. A true Hunter classic.
