Background

This wine is named after three pioneer women of the Hunter Valley, who established the initial homestead on ‘Meerea’ in the 1830’s. The three women were referred to by the family as the ‘Aunts’. The establishment of the homestead coincided with the planting of the first Shiraz in the Hunter Valley.

Vineyard Notes

This single vineyard wine is made from fruit off the low yielding, mature Glenguin vineyard in Broke.

Winemaking

With a return to more normal Hunter Valley vintage conditions, 2021 has produced exceptional white grapes and very good reds. Shiraz overall will be medium-bodied and classic Hunter in style. Great acid balance will give the wines longevity in the cellar.

Tasting Notes

A bright crimson in colour. The nose exhibits red berry fruit aromas, plums and toasty French oak nuances. The palate is medium-bodied, has supple tannins and a lovely balance.

Peak Drinking / Cellaring Potential

Medium to long term.

Food Matches

Beef dishes and Aged Hard Cheeses.

Vegan Friendly

Yes
