REGION: McLaren Vale, Australia
VARIETIES: Grenache, Gewurztraminer, Shiraz, Sauvignon Blanc, Viognier
Hugh Hamilton and his daughter, 6th generation of the family, Mary, continues the legacy making Hugh Hamilton Australia's oldest wine family. A raspberry and rose nose is provided by the Grenache and Gewurztraminer. The Shiraz, Sauvignon Blanc, and Viognier complete a textural profile that lends weight without sweetness. The supple texture of the white varieties form a perfect counterpoint to the grippier tannins of the reds.
