Bracken Ridge Shiraz 2012
A classic and excellent medium bodied Hunter Valley Shiraz. The wine has a savoury blackcurrant and red-berry lift to the aroma with hints of oriental spice on the palate. This is a rare vintage under challenging weather conditions during the Hunter Valley’s 2012 harvest and has been blended with 15% South Australian Shiraz, giving it weight and a subtle length to the palate.

Located in the Sweetwater area of the Hunter Valley, Bracken Ridge Vineyard has lean soils of orangey-brown clay loam, littered with small ironstone pebbles. With an average of 2 tonnes per vintage, Bracken Ridge produces small batch boutique wines from their highly regarded single vineyard blocks.
Slow roasted beef, lamb, and game dishes. This wine is best paired with full flavoured dishes.
Fermented in traditional open-top tanks using a gentle pump over technique, this wine was matured in French Oak barrels for 12 months prior to bottling.
Bracken Ridge is a limited stock label after turning to a premium fruit focus in 2016. The highly sought-after fruit of this small vineyard is now used to produce the top bottle of a respected Hunter Valley name, and Chris and Judith now tend the vines with years of experience and care. If you would like to see the vineyard in action, accommodation is available through our self-contained villas at www.brackenridgevillas.com.au.
