  • 2018 Bella Bubbles

    Cellar door $25.00 Members $22.00
    What a beauty is Bella, and she's SO popular! This is a gently sparkling rosé (Merlot based) – neither too sweet nor too dry ... it's just right! The fresh and juicy Merlot berry flavours shine bright and clear, the twinkling bubbles bringing a light touch of sweetness through to a crisp finale. Not just for special occasions – enjoy chilled with any glittering celebration.

  • 2019 Louise’s Verdelho

    Cellar door $22.00 Members $18.00
    LOW STOCK - ONLY A FEW CASES REMAIN! This one's named after our not-so-baby cow Louise – we reckon she's around 6 years old now, a hefty girl, but a very sweet little moo! This Verdelho has been in bottle for a few months now and is absolutely delicious – full-bodied and vivacious, striking tropical fruit tendencies, with a lovely light touch of sweetness; notes of blood orange and pink grapefruit also linger. You little ripper, Louise!

  • 2019 Woof Woof Rosé

    Cellar door $25.00 Members $25.00
    LOW STOCK - ONLY A FEW CASES REMAIN! Following on from our Woof Woof Red and Woof Woof White, we now have a Woof Woof Rosé! This wine comes from a highly awarded Lovedale vineyard, and the winemaker is a top dog in the Hunter. We chose this Woof Woof Rosé as it's inspired by the rosés of Provence – a French varietal with a couple of months maturing in old French oak, it's a beautiful light pink in colour, with lovely fresh berry notes and a slightly drier finish. And remember – 10% from each bottle of Woof Woof wines sold goes to PetRescue. Update! The 10% from our last few cases will go to the Koala Hospital, Port Macquarie http://www.koalahospital.org.au

  • 2019 2 Fat Cows Rosé

    Cellar door $22.00 Members $18.00
    This beaut rosé (Merlot based) is named after our two lovely bovines Thelma and Louise, and, like our 'girls', it's fat and juicy, heavy with red berry lusciousness, and has a light hint of rose petal. If you're a fan of our (sold out) 2017 Rosé, this one should fulfil your fantasies! She'e also popular with wine judges, and recently picked up a bronze medal.

  • 2018 Maddie’s Merlot

    Cellar door $30.00 Members $25.00
    This is our first Merlot since 2014, and is a departure from our usual aged-in-old-French-oak-for-14-months style. Our winemaker (Nick Paterson) recommended that we bottle this wine a little earlier than usual (November 21 2018) to showcase all the bright, berry fruit flavours, and boy was he right, as our 'Maddie' is already turning heads, plus it recently picked up a silver medal. Nick also introduced a new Saury French oak barrel (300L) to approx. 1/3 of the total volume, then combined that with the remaining 2/3 volume that was aged in our older French oak barrels. While drinking SO easily now, we’re excited to see how this will age – it’s an absolute cracker, and so different to our 2014 Hooky-made Merlot!

  • 2014 Merlot

    Cellar door $40.00 Members $35.00
    This one just keeps getting better and better, with a few more medals awarded recently. From the Hunter's best vintage ever, this Merlot has not put a foot wrong. Continuing to be soft yet complex on the palate, this wine has David Hook style written all over it – classic fruit flavour dominating, with older French oak barrel treatment for 14 months. This Merlot is at its peak flavour complexity now, and will drink well for at least another 10-15 years.

  • 2018 Blue Fence Shiraz

    Cellar door $35.00 Members $30.00
    This is another terrific Shiraz from Mike De Iuliis, and it's already picked up two medals (bronze and silver) at recent wine shows. Mike played with a combo of old and new French oak to get max flavour from our grapes, and this wine is already showing lots of heavy dark berry fruit flavours. This one is def going to mature into a real standout, along the lines of our 2016 and 2017 Shiraz.

  • 2019 Thirty Two Rows Shiraz

    Cellar door $35.00 Members $30.00
    This little beauty was bottled on January 15th and, wow, it's another cracker by Mike De Iuliis and his assistant winemaker Shannon! As Mike has said: our little vineyard produces a Shiraz with an amazing lifted perfume aroma – I think this vintage is fresh and vibrant, with raspberry and rhubarb flavours bouncing on your tastebuds with fruity exuberance ... it's terrific! Brad also loves it but, as usual, wants to leave it in bottle a bit longer. Either way, as with all our other Shiraz, this one will cellar very well for 10-15 years.

  • 2018 Sweet Sophie

    Cellar door $30.00 Members $25.00
    Oh how we love our little Sophie! Our 2018 version (and you'll notice we've gone back to a 375mL pocket-sized bottle!) has a range of bright citrus and tropical fruit flavours, that are now also developing light honey notes. This is a real little sweetie with a beautifully balanced and crisp finish. Enjoy well-chilled as an aperitif, with delicate desserts, to temper light Asian dishes, or to complement charcuterie and cheese.

  • 2014 Shiraz

    Cellar door $75.00 Members $65.00
    DUAL TROPHY-WINNER! With 6 medals (including a Top Gold Medal) and 2 trophies – need we say more! If you need further confirmation of this one’s pedigree, have a look at our Awards page (to come) for a full list of credits. Deep cherry red in colour, this wine has complex aromas of plums, aniseed, spice and flint. The palate is medium-bodied with blackberry fruit flavours and an interesting note of menthol, finishing with soft and drying tannins. While always magnificent to drink now, this Shiraz will cellar well up to at least 2034.
