Winery Tasting Notes

This fine aged Tawny is made from Shiraz and Mataro, and a small proportion of Grenache fruit, blended to an average age of five years.

The fruit, picked late in harvest to maintain the sweetness of the style, is sourced entirely from the Riverina wine region in New South Wales. A large proportion of the fruit is sourced from McWilliam’s own vineyards, with the remainder from long-term contracted growers.

The fruit is harvested at above 14° baumé, crushed into open fermenters, and then partially fermented on skins for between seven and ten days to extract maximum colour and flavour.Fermentation is arrested at the desired sweetness by the gradual addition of a high quality neutral spirit, which is also made at McWilliam’s Hanwood winery, near Griffith in New South Wales. This gradual fortification of around two per cent alcohol per addition helps control fermentation and ensures seamless wine and fortification integration.

Following the wine’s clarification and filtration, it is matured in small, old oak barrels for an average of five years. These oak barrels are more than ten years old. This allows the wine to slowly develop complexity without obvious oak flavours and characters. The final blend is then cold stabilised and filtered prior to bottling.

Winery Profile

Set in the midst of the unique Australian landscape is the McWilliam's Hanwood Estate Winery. Established in 1917, the winery stands today as a pillar of winemaking excellence dedicated to creating the very best wines.

In March 2008, following two years of significant investment and expansion, the new McWilliam's Hanwood Estate Winery was opened.

The multi-million dollar development project saw the creation of a new small winemaking facility, created to handle small, premium parcels, with state-of-the-art equipment as well as new laboratory and winemaking areas, and a brand new office. The expansion allows greater flexibility and opportunities for wine style development and innovation in the region and an ongoing commitment to the Riverina area since its winemaking potential was first discovered by John James McWilliam in 1913, when he established the first winery in the region - McWilliam’s Hanwood Estate.
