About the wine

Ash's new Hunter Shiraz
  • From your first taste you’ll find lashings of raspberry and cherry aromas with a generous hint of toasty savoury oak and flavours driven by the darker fruits with the most beautiful structure and mouthfeel. Ah, yummm!

  • Ash has sourced this small-batch Shiraz from a traditional non-organic single vineyard in Upper Hunter called Merton Vineyard, 20 minutes away from the family vineyard.

  • Machine harvested in the cool of the night, crushed and de-stemmed, cold soaked to lock in colour and flavour and to slowly soak off tannins. Pressed to a stainless steel tank and left to settle before maturing in French oak barrels for 11 months to add texture and sweetness and then blended together before bottling.

Best before
8 yrs or longer

Serving advice
Drinking well young but with a little decanting the wine opens nicely, or swirl in the glass to open. Don't be afraid to serve slightly chilled.

Food match
Beef, mushroom and red wine pie served with creamy mash and peas.

Meet the winemaker - Ashley Horner

  • Born and bred in the Upper Hunter Valley, Ash worked in local vineyards while helping to establish his Family Vineyard.
  • Ashley is one of the most passionate people we have ever met.  When asked what he loved most about his job, his answer was "Everything!  I love the action during vintage and the progression of grapes becoming a bottle to enjoy. I love the diversity and the abstract thinking you can put into creating a wine product. I also love the diversity of the people that work in the industry and how winemaking makes me feel complete in my life".
  • What's the difference between Ash and the rest?  His grapes are from organic vineyards and are made using fully certified organic practices!
