Handcrafted by Domain de Binet and Ballabourneen winemaker, Dan Binet and made from grapes grown at Block Eight Hunter Valley. This delicious and unique single vineyard wine has been matured in French oak barrels.  Featuring the boldness you’d expect of a Hunter Shiraz, with textures of wild forest fruits and silky savoury tannins – it has a finish lifted by sour blackberries.  Beautifully complimenting this is a soft underlying note of earthiness from the Reishi mushrooms imparted into the wine during barrel fermentation which immediately fills you with warmth and a sense of wellbeing.

Reishi Mushrooms have been used for many centuries in Chinese traditional medicine. They believe the mushrooms help enhance the immune system, reduce stress, and improve sleep. They also take reishi mushroom to try and treat health conditions such as high blood pressure and cholesterol.
