Glenguin Estate Stonybroke Shiraz 2014


My first look at this Hunter Valley producer and I like what I see. Coming off five acres in Broke, organic practices are in use.

The fruit is handpicked and cropped at 1.5 tonnes per acre. One of the greatest Hunter vintages in recent memory, this sat on skins for six days before seeing time in oak. A small portion of Tannat was curiously co-fermented with the Shiraz. A delicious wine and good value for the asking price.

Medium bodied, the red fruits and surrounded by typical Hunter earthiness. A fine spice rides through the core playing an active supporting role. Nicely balanced with plenty of depth, the finish is long and soft with the spice lingering and teasing out the moreish factor.

Drink now to eight years.
