Gundog Estate Rare Game Shiraz 2019

Sourced from two prized Hunter Valley vineyards: the Somerset and Tinkler’s (ex-Lindeman’s)1948 block. Made by Matt Burton and the Gundog team to be a true “Hunter Burgundy” just medium bodied style.

Gundog Estate, Rare Game, Shiraz, Hunter Valley, 2019


From the last of 3 warm, quality years for the Hunter. Dusty, earthy truffle tones with clove, peppercorns, dark berry fruit and light char. Medium bodied and svelte. Plenty of precise dark fruit and spice wrapped in a milky richness and tightly knitted tannins. Showcasing that Australian Shiraz can be powerful without being brutish.

RRP: $70
Alc: 12.9%
Rating: 18.75/20 (94/100)
