Hunter Valley, New South Wales
A superb regional Hunter Valley Shiraz made from vines planted in 1973.
The XYZ brand wines constitute modern styles of Hunter Valley Chardonnay, Rosé and Shiraz. New Generation wines.
Sourced from the ‘Lochleven’ vineyard in Pokolbin and ‘Glenguin’ Estate vineyard in Broke.
2021 was a welcome return to vintage normality. Good rainfall started in March 2020 and continued throughout the year. This set up the 2021 vintage well. Yields were back to reasonable levels.
A bright dark Crimson colour, aromas of red fruits, plums and raspberry jam. The French oak adds spice and complexity. The tannins are silky and fine. An impressive length of flavour for an entry level wine.
Medium to long term.
Beef, lamb and cheese based cuisine.
