  • 2018 Bella Bubbles

    Cellar door $25.00 Members $22.00
    DON'T WAIT TOO LONG – WE'RE ALMOST OUT OF OUR BELLA! 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 Woof Woof Rosé

    Cellar door $25.00 Members $25.00
    LOW STOCK - ONLY A FEW CASES REMAIN! 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 pink in colour, with lovely fresh berry notes and a dry finish. And remember, 10% from each bottle of Woof Woof wines sold goes to PetRescue and/or a number of other Australian animal rescue groups, with the last of the proceeds of sales of this wine now going to The Koala Hospital, Port Macquarie.

  • 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!

  • 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 to showcase all the bright, berry fruit flavours. Nick also introduced a new Saury French oak barrel to the mix, blending this with the same wine that was also ageing in two of our older French oak barrels. Maddie's is drinking SO easily now, and it's growing old gracefully!

  • 2020 Freya’s Vintage Merlot

    Cellar door $30.00 Members $25.00
    Bottling late September - will be available for the October long weekend! This juicy Merlot is named after Freya, the 20 y.o. ex-racehorse we adopted from the RSPCA in January 2020, just in time for her to oversee vintage! Freya's Vintage is full of fragrance and spice, and is a beautiful deep, glossy purple colour. Soft Merlot tannins are complemented by gentle integration of oak, making this a finely balanced wine with clean, ripe blackberry and raspberry notes on the palate.

  • 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 in January 2020 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 – kind words Mr De Iuliis. This vintage is fresh and vibrant with, we think, raspberry and rhubarb flavours bouncing on your tastebuds with fruity exuberance ... it's terrific! As with all our other Shiraz, this one will cellar very well for 10-15 years.

  • 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.
