Sanguine Estate

James' Review

The Hunter family - parents Linda and Tony, and their children Mark and Jodi, with their respective partners Melissa and Brett - have 20ha of shiraz, with a ‘fruit salad block' of chardonnay, viognier, merlot, tempranillo, petit verdot, cabernet sauvignon and cabernet franc. Low-yielding vines and the magic of the Heathcote region have produced Shiraz of exceptional intensity, which has received rave reviews in the US, and led to the ‘sold out' sign being posted almost immediately upon release. With the ever-expanding vineyard, Mark has become full-time vigneron and winemaker, and Jodi has taken over from her father as CEO and general manager. Exports to Singapore and China.
