The Wines

Kurrajong Vineyard
Until mid-2014 we had two small vineyard location in the Pokolbin area. We grew a wide variety of grapes, so our portfolio is a little unusual – we specialise in Rosés, and unique Red blends. We do all the winegrowing, winemaking, bottling, labelling, packing and selling ourselves. Rosés Perhaps because rosés are typically sweet in Australia, it an undervalued style. Rosés can be enjoyed with most ethnic foods, and with all the light and fresh dishes that make up so much of today’s cuisine. We prefer dry, savoury French Rosés, so that is the style we make. We made a Merlot Rosé first, and it is a dry wine that brings back to us memories of floating down the tree-lined canals of Southern France. In 2013 we added a Cabernet Rosé, with a more complex structure. In 2014 we added a Shiraz Rosé, with a fuller body and nose. All our rosés are ideally paired with salads and seafood. Classic and Premium Wines With our classic and premium wines we make the traditional Hunter varieties: Semillon, Chardonnay, Verdelho, Merlot and Shiraz. We aim to capture the terroir of the Hunter Valley – its unique soil and climate. From our oldest block of vines in Belford we make our Belford Semillon. Growing in sandy soil next to Jump Up Creek, these old vines produce a lean Semillon with exceptional ageing potential. From the blocks in Pokolbin we produced our award-winning Soma Semillon and Verdelho, as well as our Chardonnay, Merlot and Shiraz. Premium-Reserve Wines Our unique premium-reserve wines are each named after a poem by an Australian pioneer bush-poet. The series includes: a very traditional French blend of Cab- Sauv/Cab-Franc/Merlot/Petit Verdot in the Bordeaux style; an Italian-inspired blend of Barbera-Shiraz; a Spanish-inspired blend of Tempranillo-Shiraz, and an aged Semillon made in a Croatian style.
