  • 2014 Merlot

    RRP $30.00 Club price $25.00
    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 will reach its peak flavour complexity in 2019, and will drink well for at least another 10-15 years after that.

    What a stand-out rosé - it's just delightful! Our awarded Merlot brings crisp and light flavours to this wine, with notes of honey and strawberries and cream bringing joy to the palate. This is our fave veranda wine for sunny afternoons; beautifully complements pasta, seafood or chilli dishes.

  • 2018 Maddie’s Merlot

    RRP $30.00 Club price $25.00
    NOW AVAILABLE! A slight departure from our usual aged-in-old-oak style, our winemaker (Nick Paterson) recommended that we bottle this Merlot a little earlier than usual (mid-November 2018) to showcase all the bright, berry fruit flavours - and boy, was he right! 'Maddie' is already turning heads - it's a fresh and dainty Merlot that could certainly be chilled on hot Summer days. 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 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!
