Winemaker Ian Little spent years of his childhood in Argentina and has returned many times since to explore its wine regions. So when Ian went looking for a new variety to explore, Malbec, as the signature variety of Argentina, was always the natural choice.
Wine Write Huon Hooke recently wrote that this wine 'hit me like a bolt of lightning .. fragrant, medium-bodied, silky tannins, utterly delicious. The next morning I bought a case'. Elegantly structured, the blend combines the rich earthy tones of Hunter Valley Shiraz with the vibrancy of Pinot Noir.
This Shiraz is from dry-gown 49-year-old vines, producing an elegant, fruit driven wine. It is bright cherry red in the glass with aromas of dried herbs, violets and cherry vanilla. The palate is medium weight showing lovely red berries, with a juicy persistence of flavour and silky soft tannins.
Sangiovese is one of the oldest Italian varieties. A perfectly medium bodied wine, imbued with sweet cherry and loaded with fabulous smoky chocolate & mushroom characters.
A deeply layered wine of exceptional vibrancy and brightness. Potent in smooth red, black fruit characters, violets with a dusting of savoury spice and a lengthy, supple tannin.
Vibrantly aromatic in its red berry, savoury and earthy perfume. Great concentration of dark berried fruits, with a taut tannin profile that extends right through the length of the palate.
This Little Gem release is seamless & silky with voluptuous layers of fruit and oak flavours with a core of cassis and berry flavours. Matured for 24 months in oak – it shows.
A traditional medium bodied Hunter Valley Shiraz. Aromas of cherries and mulberries are layered over delicate notes of dried spice and toasty oak
They say Barbera is the most food friendly variety in the world. We agree - with its plush fruit characters of currants and blackberries and its soft, supple tannins this is a wine that is dangerusly more-ish.
Barbera is a medium bodied wine with aromas of dried cherry and plums. The beautiful savoury flavours on the palate are followed by a firm acidity and lingering soft tannins.
