Peter Drayton Wines

New South Wales | Hunter Valley

James' Review

Owned by Peter and Leesa Drayton. The estate plantings include shiraz, chardonnay, semillon, cabernet sauvignon, tempranillo, merlot, verdelho and tyrian. Peter is a commercial/ industrial builder, so constructing the cellar door was a busman's holiday. The vineyard features an atmospheric function venue and wedding chapel set among the vines, with events organised and catered for by Enzo Weddings. Exports to Vietnam, Hong Kong and China.

About

Peter Drayton is a 5th generation descendant of the famed Drayton Family Wines from Australia’s Hunter Valley. Peter Drayton’s IronBark Hill vineyard is set at the foot of the Brokenback range, the 40 hectare property and has 18 hectares under vine.

Peter has a unique story, fiercely determined and independent often referred to as the Black Sheep. Peter’s new range reflects his love and respect for the traditional varieties that have made the Hunter Valley world famous whilst also saluting the varieties with an optimistic future in the Hunter Valley.

The vineyard produces wine from the grape varieties for which the Hunter is famous, including Shiraz, Semillon and Chardonnay. It also has extensive plantings of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Verdelho and the CSIRO hybrid grape Tyrian. An exciting range of ‘alternate’ varieties are now available given these Mediterranean styles are extremely suitable and receptive to the Hunter’s climate. To compliment it all, an impressive sparkling wine range and selection of Liqueur Fortified wines are available. The extent of the range is truly exceptional for a small, boutique producer.
