This is where things gets serious. The flavour profile isn’t your standard fair. It’s alive with character. Leather, game, black cherries, smoked meats, cloves and peppers. It feels powerful in the mouth and then stern and meaty through the finish; almost ferrous and/or reductive; it almost goes without saying that it also rocks and rolls with tannin. It’s not the easiest wine to get your head around, and that’s part of why it’s good; it commands the floor. Drink: 2020-2034+ (Sep16)

An Iconic wine that is only made when vintage conditions allow the very best fruit to develop. As such, over the last 10 vintages Glenguin has only made a shiraz of the quality demanded to be called ‘Aristea’ in 2007, 2009 and 2014. 12 months in French oak with 50% of barrels new, along with 40% whole bunch pressed, is the highlight and as a result we hold it back from release for, on average, five years to allow the oak tannins and the fruit flavours to fully integrate into the wine. The result is a classic aged Hunter Shiraz on release.
