The 2-bottle Shiraz Red bundles comes with two gorgeous bottles of Ernest Hill Wines: 2017 William Henry Shiraz and 2017 CEO Shiraz. The bundle represents the longlasting love that has withstood the taste (test) of time and the outstanding Shiraz wine-making of Hunter Valley.
Shiraz is the signature red grape variety of the Hunter Valley, which is famous for producing full-flavored, medium to full-bodied wines. The warm weather conditions produce easy-drinking wines with a distinctive Hunter character which is different from the cooler climate Shiraz from Southern Australia.
This 2017 CEO Shiraz displays rich flavors of blackberry and mulberry with a hint of white pepper spice. These are enhanced by 16 months of maturation in French oak barrels. The 2017 vintage produces a wine of great depth, with a long smooth satisfying finish. The 2017 CEO Shiraz has received Gold China Wine and Spirit Award, and the Gold AWC Vienna award.
