Everytime I go up to the Hunter, I try to find at least one new cellar door to visit. Of course, I don’t get up to the Hunter as often as I like so it has taken me until now to discover Tinklers. Their shirazs will be enough to entice you to visit having just won gold medals at the Hunter Valley Wine Show 2012.
This particular Shiraz has just enough Viognier to give it a lift in fragrance and texture. Perfumed cloves and cherry with blueberry nuances, it is elegant, curvaceous and supple with a long savoury spice finish. Enjoy with a warm duck salad with a clove scented vinaigrette.
