Hunter’s Wines have won more than 165 gold medals at national and international wine competitions and they are still breaking new ground with new varietals, new wine-making techniques and consistently seeking the best for their wines. Still family-owned, they are nurturing the next generation of Hunter's winemakers ensuring they’ll be around for years to come. Through Jane’s strong determination, together with the talents of Chief Winemaker Gary Duke and General Manager Peter Macdonald Hunter's original vineyard area has increased by 2.5 times its original size and the company’s annual output has grown to around 75,000 cases of wine, nearly 80% of which is exported.
Rich ripe plum, berry and subtle forest floor aromas marry together for a smooth medium bodied Pinot Noir. The palate shows persistent rich cherry/plum flavours and mild spicy oak making an enjoyable and easy drinking wine.
