The Bimbadgen Members Collection is a series featuring hand selected parcels of premium varietals, crafted in limited quantities exclusively for our wine club family.

The grapes from this Shiraz were harvested from Bimbadgen’s Palmers Lane vineyard.The clay over limestone soil produces a wine with lifted aromas of red currants combined with subtle spice from aging in oak. The palate is typically Hunter Valley, medium bodied, with bright red fruits. The fine tannin structure and depth of fruit makes this Shiraz very approachable and one to savour.

Handcrafted by Rauri Donkin and the winemaking team at Bimbadgen.

  • Made:
    The Shiraz fruit was harvested and transported to the winery in the evening. It was crushed and de-stemmed and allowed to cold soak for a period of two days before fermentation. The must (juice and skins) was pumped over twice daily facilitating colour, flavour and tannin extraction. The wine was pressed and allowed to settle before being transferred into a mixture of French barriques (225L) and puncheons (500L). Malo-lactic fermentation was completed in 3 weeks. In November a rigorous barrel tasting and classification brought together the blend. The wine was fined before bottling in January.
