The Bimbadgen Estate range of wines consists of classic and emerging varietals crafted from fruit sourced within the Hunter Valley, Australia’s oldest wine region. This Shiraz is a blend of our McDonalds Road and Palmers Lane old vine Shiraz blocks. The red clay soils of our McDonalds Road vineyard provide the rich, dark blackberry fruits; whilst the red clay over limestone of the Palmers Lane vineyard add bright red perfumed aromas. Aging in old and new French barriques and puncheons adds gentle oak spice and ensures a medium body, soft, easy drinking Hunter Valley Shiraz.
