Hunter Valley, NSW
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.
Fruit for this wine is from the mature ‘Lochleven’ Estate vineyard, planted in 1973 and located in Pokolbin.
Although still very much in drought, the 2018 vintage had milder temperatures than 2017 resulting in more even ripening. An excellent Shiraz vintage, the wines made have exceptional colour, are full flavoured and have beautiful structure.
A lovely deep ruby red colour. Aromas of dark berries, black cherries, plums and jam. The French oak is unobtrusive and the tannins are silky and fine. An impressive length of flavour for an entry level wine.
Medium to long term.
