Hungerford Hill is proud to release its 2020 Hunter Valley Fiano. Pale straw-yellow in colour with aromas of mandarin and garden herbs, this textural wine finishes with a refreshing lemon acidity for which our Fiano is well known for.
Deep red in colour, a heightened aroma of mocha coffee and spicy dark fruits with a creamy vanillan oak background note. The palate is both powerful and voluminous with layers of unravelling flavour of plumb and blueberry fruits balanced with very fine and structured tannins that linger.
The palate is in the Hunter Valley medium bodied style and does not disappoint with lashings of juicy cherry fruit integrated with fine tannins throughout the palate and a fresh lingering acidity. The wine is combination of flavour, softness and lightness.
This Hunter Valley Rosé is made from our Dalwood vineyard on the banks of the Hunter River. It is fragrant and elegant with ripe red berry aromas. The palate is smooth with a long savoury texture and crisp refreshing finish. Serve lightly chilled.
Vermentino hails from Italy’s Liguria region and the Mediterranean Islands of Sardinia and Corsica. Vermentino thrives in the warm climate of the Lower Hunter Valley with its thick skins and vibrant acidity. The wines are light to medium bodied with a textured palate. Produced from the St. Vernay Vineyard below the Hungerford Hill Cellar Door, it was handpicked and ‘wild’ fermented with natural yeast in older barriques; adding fabulous texture and weight to the quince and lime aromas.
Hungerford Hill Single Dalwood Vineyard Chardonnay grows in sandy loam soil on the south bank of the Hunter River. The 2020 vintage was warm and dry. The fruit was hand picked in early February and is exotic with ripe flavours of peach and melon, and a creamy palate with well integrated oak.

You can choose a wine that's either a classic or a conversation starter, depending on how you're feeling.

The 2019 Sangiovese is vibrant with wild red cherry and violet fruit with a long and savoury palate.
Sangiovese thrives in the well drained red soils of the Hilltops region near Young, NSW; The dry climate and long growing season of warm sunny days and cold nights produces an intensely flavoured and classically styled wine.
The 2018 vintage was warm and dry in the lower Hunter Valley, resulting in beautifully ripe Semillon with fragrant lemon and lime fruit and crisp natural acidity. Being preservative free this wine is best enjoyed as a young wine, it is not suitable for cellaring.
Deep purple red with a nose of chocolate, earthy spice and blood plum, this follows with an incredibly smooth creamy palate with blackberry and plum fruit and dense supple tannins and a long fruit dominated finish.
“Medium to deep red colour with a good tint of purple. The bouquet shows some graphite, coal-dust and char-oak, while the palate is rich and soft, the flavour deliciously detailed and long-lasting, with superb harmony and seamlessness. A stunning shiraz that drinks wonderfully well now but has plenty up its sleeve. Wow!” – Huon Hooke

The 2017 Sweetwater Estate Shiraz and Cabernet blocks were picked on the 18th and 27th February. The warm dry 2017 vintage resulted in beautifully ripe and pristine fruit. Deep red with plum, blackberry, sage and cassis aromas with fine grained tannins.
The warm and dry 2018 vintage resulted in beautifully ripe pristine fruit. Deeply coloured with fragrant cherry plum and violet aromas. The natural fermentation process was completed with maturation in oak barrels to produce a velvety soft palate with admiral length.
Blackberry and jubey raspberry, cedar and tobacco, a pleasant earthiness and violet perfume. It’s medium to full-bodied, firm grainy almost gravelly tannin, something like iodine in there too, and a firm and slightly hard finish, tannin gripping as it goes.
