Deep, bright red/purple colour. Sawn-timber aromas with some nuttiness and coconut, A big, rich, silky smooth wine with some spiciness and also liberal oak. Plenty of new barrels. Some smoky regional character. Medium to full-bodied and smooth in mouth, balanced and long. Lots of grip. Needs time to build more complexity, which will undoubtedly come. Unequivocally oak-driven. (Dec11)


Huon Hooke,

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.
