Kelman Vineyard produces boutique Hunter wines of distinction. This is a powerful Hunter Shiraz. Much more black fruited then previous years, with fruit picked at optimal ripeness. A wine that needs time in glass to show its multifaceted structure and depth of flavours. Blackberries, cherries, plums and wonderful tannin and acid structure will provide many years of drinking pleasure from this wine for those with patience. 100% French oak, with only 6% being new, as we wanted to retain the abundant fresh fruit notes of 2017.
