Background

Both the Eather and Tedder families have deep Scottish heritage. Robin Tedder is the 3rd Baron of Glenguin. The title awarded after his Grandfather’s distinguished service to WW2, where he was Marshal of the Royal Air Force and then Deputy Supreme Commander at Supreme Headquarters Allied Expeditionary Force under General Eisenhower. The Eather family, with its links to Alexander Munro, were initially Second Fleet convicts (1790) and then farming pioneers in the Hunter Valley. The coat of arms on the label is a marriage of the two family crests.

Vineyard Notes

A single vineyard Shiraz from the Glenguin Vineyard located on Milbrodale Road in Broke.

Winemaking

On the hillside at just 1.8 hectares in size the Schoolhouse block is a unique occurrence of deep gravel on a raised ancient river bench where the shiraz vines’ roots penetrate deeply into the free draining soils. A great Shiraz source in any vintage.

Tasting Notes

A bright crimson colour with purple hues, on the nose there is black and blue fruits. The palate is medium-bodied, silky, and has a supple and velvety mouthfeel. The length of flavour and balance wonderful.

Peak Drinking / Cellaring Potential

This wine has all the characteristics that are required for very long term cellaring.

Food Matches

Red meat dishes and aged cheeses.
