Sanguine Estate

Victoria | Heathcote

Our Review

The Hunter family – parents Linda and Tony, their children Mark and Jodi and their respective partners Melissa and Brett – have 21.5ha of shiraz and a ‘fruit salad block’ of chardonnay, viognier, verdelho, merlot, tempranillo, petit verdot, lagrein, nebbiolo, grenache, 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 China.

About

The Hunter family - parents Linda and Tony, and their children Mark and Jodi, with their respective partners Melissa and Brett - have 28ha under vine at their Estate located on the famous 510 million year old Cambrian earth fault line just 8km from the heart of the Heathcote Township. 77% of the vineyard is planted to Shiraz with the balance comprising Chardonnay, Viognier, Merlot, Tempranillo, Petit Verdot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Grenache, Lagrein, Verdejo and Nebbiolo. Low-yielding vines and the magic of their central Heathcote site have produced exceptional Shiraz achieving consistent awards and accolades since their inception. Utilising traditional winemaking techniques in a modern gravity fed winery, combines old world winemaking that Tony’s Great Grandfather would have used in the 1860’s but in a modern understanding of its ways. He would be so proud of what his family has achieved. With the ever-expanding vineyard, Mark is the full-time vigneron and winemaker, and Jodi has taken over from her father as CEO.
