2014 Mystery Aged Release Hunter Valley Shiraz

2014 Mystery Aged Release Hunter Valley Shiraz

Sabine Duval

"A classic Hunter Valley on the nose, leather and spice, liquorice. The nose shows complex Tertiary notes, not too much fruit but not due to lacking, more just mellowed out and developed with age. Palate is dry and has great acid, lovely length, mouthpuckering, but tannins are super soft. The finish is long, approachable and would be beautiful with food."

Direct from the cellar door, where it is selling as a $70/bottle mature release, comes the 2014 Mystery Aged Release Hunter Valley Shiraz.

Like many of the great 14s, this has a richness and power that you'd normally only see in South Australian Shiraz, but with a balance that the Hunter is famous for. You can see straight away why Huon Hooke called this a 'very stylish' red, with 'full body and terrific balance' plus 'power and elegance', the result a 'classic Hunter of tremendous character' worth 95pts.

The secret here starts in the vineyard, wit this red sourced from a block planted by the legendary Len Evans in the '60s. Combine that with the talents of a rising start Hunter winemaker in the winery and a near-perfect vintage and no wonder this red is a star!

Who made it?

Our Mystery Wineries are found right around the country, some of which you will know very well. Many of our Mystery Wines are already well known to wine buyers and sell for much higher prices under their own label. But winemakers need to eat, and when it comes time to find space for a new vintage, they naturally want to sell whatever they can quickly. Which is where we come in. We agree to take a few cases of said wine in exchange for a better price (so we can sell it cheaper). The condition being that the wine can't be sold under it's original label (hence the "Mystery"). The end result is the same wine, but at fantastic bargain prices! Our Mystery Wines are all covered by our full money back guarantee, purely because we know the vino in the bottle is good quality. We'll never sell below par, 'out of condition' wines. Ever. It's simple, same wine, hidden label, cheaper result.

I am absolutely wine obsessed and I love nothing better than sharing that obsession with others. I love choosing great bottles from all through the quality spectrum. From $10 quaffers through to truly monumental $100 bottles of liquid art, I love introducing friends, family and our customers to world beating wines at all price points. Below, you’ll find some wines I think you’ll really love.
