Hunter Valley Shiraz Spirit is an eau de vie distilled from salvaged smoke tainted grapes as the first product in a three-part series to support the Hunter Valley wine community following the devastating 2019 / 2020 bushfires.

Packaged as the second release under the Trials & Exceptions Series, our new range reserved for exceptional casks and small-batch trials, this innovative eau de vie is one of the first of its kind in Australia and showcases our experimentation with wine made from 50 plus tonnes of smoke-tainted Hunter Valley 2020 shiraz and cabernet sauvignon grapes with the majority of spirit to be aged for release as a brandy in coming years.

With a strong ethos around supporting local producers and growers, a penchant for innovative collaborations, along with team members whose families were impacted by the Hunter Valley harvest write-off in January 2020, this initiative was conceived together with fourth-generation Tulloch Wines along with winemakers, First Creek Wines who worked with the Archie Rose team to identify eight smaller growers in the Pokolbin, Broke Fordwich and Upper Hunter sub-regions of the Hunter Valley who needed support.

Displaying lively notes of tropical fruits, crème fraîche and berries with just the slightest suggestion of smoke, it’s an adventurous spirit, unusual at first in taste but excellent with the simple addition of fresh-pressed apple juice or even Coca-Cola and freshly squeezed lime juice. Or why not try it in our twist on the Paloma—The Pokolbin, where the eau de vie effortlessly replaces tequila in a knock-out grapefruit highball. View more recipes here

Please note the Hunter Valley Shiraz Brandy pre-purchase offer has now sold out. You’re also able to reserve just 100 bottles of the future Hunter Valley Shiraz Brandy via pre-purchase today, to be sent out to you once this product is released in approximately three to four years. In recognition of your very valuable contribution to the eight Hunter Valley grape growers featured in this shiraz spirit range, we will also send these people a commemorative card including production notes as well as an Archie Rose membership card that gives access to 10% discount on drinks at the Archie Rose Bar in Rosebery, Sydney and 20% discount on wines and other wine club member benefits upon card presentation at the Tulloch Wines Cellar Door in Pokolbin, NSW.
