Hunter Valley Wines
Hunter Valley is Australia’s oldest wine region. Some vineyards date back to the 1860’s and are still producing wine. The warm and humid climate in the area yields distinctive Australian wines like Shiraz and Semillon. Red clay loam soils are ideal for making Shiraz with uncommon notes. Our wines are sourced from Graveyard, Old Hill, Old Paddock, Braemore and Old Patch vineyards. We take our wines seriously but aren’t afraid to discover young winemakers that are producing innovative, new varieties such as Tempranillo, Barbera and Fiano. You’ll find that our menu pairs perfectly with red and white wines.
Hunter Valley Chardonnay
Hunter Valley was one of the first regions in Australia to grow Chardonnay. It helped perpetuate Chards into an Australian icon. Chards are now a permanent part of the Aussie lexicon. We have a bottle to accommodate your palette. Choose from lean and mineral to full flavoured and rich styles. Chards pair well with mild, subtle foods. Cuisines that are not too spicy, pungent or acidic work best. Try a glass of Chard with the Roasted Red Capsicum & Mushroom Risotto. It will also pair well with the sweet potato, corn and butternut squash cream soup.
Hunter Valley Semillon
This wine is well recognized as a benchmark wine. It is a stellar white variety in New South Wales. Semillon gets better with age. You’ll notice the faint lemon curd plus toasty complexity. Semillon grapes are picked early to yield low alcohol and sugar concentrations. This wine pairs wonderfully with spicy and Asian cuisine. Try a bottle with our Grilled Salmon Filet and Bok Choy. Shell fish complement this wine well. Order a glass with our Prawn skewers seasoned with lemon grass and lime. It tastes great with chicken, game and cheese. Let the server know that you’d like to enjoy Semillon with the Kangaroo Filet Salad or the Zucchini flowers stuffed with goat cheese.
Hunter Valley Shiraz
Shiraz is made from a red grape that produces a spicy, rich flavour. We have specifically selected Shiraz that have undertones of black cherry, black pepper, blackberry, plum and chocolate. Because of these rich characteristics, it pairs well with grilled meat, rich cheeses, veggies, beef and wild game. Have a glass with our Kangaroo Filet Salad. Enhance the taste with a generous slice of homemade beef lasagne. Stop in for lunch and enjoy Shiraz with a beef burger topped with caramelized onions. The beef pie and Crispy Skinned Chicken Breast pair extremely well with Hunter Valley Shiraz.
