Archie Rose Hunter Valley Shiraz Spirit

Archie Rose Hunter Valley Shiraz Spirit

Regular price $99.00

700ml // ABV 40%

Hunter Valley Shiraz Spirit is an eau de vie distilled from salvaged smoke tainted grapes as the first product in a three-part series to support the Hunter Valley wine community following the devastating 2019 / 2020 bushfires.

Packaged as the second release under the Trials & Exceptions Series, our new range reserved for exceptional casks and small-batch trials, this innovative eau de vie is one of the first of its kind in Australia and showcases our experimentation with wine made from 50 plus tonnes of smoke-tainted Hunter Valley 2020 shiraz and cabernet sauvignon grapes with the majority of spirit to be aged for release as a brandy in coming years.

Displaying lively notes of tropical fruits, crème fraîche and berries with just the slightest suggestion of smoke, it’s an adventurous spirit, unusual at first in taste but excellent with the simple addition of fresh-pressed apple juice or even Coca-Cola and freshly squeezed lime juice. - Archie Rose
