Overview

The Shiraz grapes were sourced from old vine vineyards across the Hunter, grown on red volcanic soil, resulting in lower yields and greater fruit intensity. The 2016 vintage Uno is referred to lovingly by the winery team as “The Pressings”, a change from a single vineyard Uno, “The Pressings” encompasses the very best parcels from all our vineyards in 2016, but rather than taking the light run off, only the hard pressings from each parcel were used to assemble the 2016 Uno. These hard pressings were rich in colour, tannin and the most concentrated of flavors.

Tasting Notes

Aroma

Developed red berry aromas and black fruits, rich vanilla spice and nuances of Christmas cake.

Palate

This wine will benefit from careful cellaring for 10 years. Over time, tannins will soften even further, and the wine will develop deeper black berry and plum aromas and flavours of licorice, spice, and dark chocolate.
