  • 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 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.
