The CEO range is made from small high quality parcels specially selected by the CEO.
2017 was an excellent vintage in the Hunter and produced some spectacular red wines.
The 2017 CEO Shiraz is a great example of the vintage and is a blend of three parcels of grapes
from the Ernest Hill Vineyard and another nearby friend's vineyard.
Displaying luscious dark berry fruit characters, silky smooth tannins and toasty vanillan oak flavours.
Drink now or cellar for 8 years.
Our flagship red. Made only in select years, this wine represents the pinnacle of shiraz making here at the Hill. Hand selected bunches from low yielding 40 year old vines are the foundation of this wine. A big ripe blackberry/mulberry fruit palate, subtle hints of spice, and luscious savoury tones are interwoven with touches of Hunter earthiness. 14 months maturation in our best French oak, ensures the tannins are fine and smooth. Serve with Pokolbin Hare, or a Scotch fillet steak with peppercorn sauce.
Our estate grown Tempranillo is a medium bodied wine displaying a ripe raspberry fruit palate with hints of liquorice and spice. Twelve months maturation in French and American oak barrels has added some wonderful, subtle toasty, characters. Best matched with white bean and chorizo casserole or roast suckling pig.
A fine example of this noble French grape variety.Made from a specially selected parcel of single vineyard Hunter grapes, it displays mouth filling flavours of blackcurrant and blackberry, combined with some subtle toasty vanillan highlights, from oak barrel maturation, and some silky smooth tannins.
A must for your next roast meat and poultry feast.
This is a medium bodied wine, displaying luscious spicy plum jam and blackcurrent flavours, balanced with toasty oak and traditional Hunter earthiness. A rich middle palate accompanied by fine smooth tannins makes this a traditional easy drinking style, whilst still retaining a complex character and structure. A must for lamb shanks, or try basil and prosciutto wood fired pizza.
