“The release of the 2017 edition of James Halliday’s Wine Companion last week has again revealed Glenguin Estate as the hidden gem of the Hunter Valley with 5 wines being rated at 95 points or above and also regaining our five red star winery rating.
The trio of 2014 shirazes – Stonybroke (95pts), Schoolhouse Block (97pts) and the flagship Aristea (97pts) – all received high praise as premium Hunter Valley wines.
Glenguin Estate vigneron Robin Tedder, MW, says “The 2014 shirazes from Glenguin make all the hard work over a quarter of a century seem worthwhile. The wines have a purity and zing to them whilst also being endowed with terrific length, depth and balance, capable of extended development in bottle, over decades in the case of Schoolhouse and Aristea. The unique bench of river gravel at Glenguin (the main reason we purchased the property) has proven itself a wonderful site for shiraz, especially so in 2014.”
