Shiraz is the most famous and best red varietal in the Hunter Valley. Quite distinct from shiraz in other parts of Australia, Hunter Shiraz is medium to full bodied, spicy, rich and fruity. Typical flavour profiles of Hunter Shiraz include dark berries, saddle leather, tobacco, cloves and chocolate. Often having better natural acidity and spice than shiraz from other parts of Australia, Hunter Shiraz rewards careful cellaring and food pairing.
