OUR #1 BESTSELLING RED WINE
Briar Ridge is a 5 star boutique winery nestled in the picturesque Mount View region of the Hunter Valley. The winery has been recognised with the prestigious 5 star rating by Australia's renowned wine critic James Halliday in his Australian Wine Companion for 5 consecutive years. This iconic Hunter vineyard was purchased in 1988 by Dr John Davis. Briar Ridge is characterised by its history, substance and youthful enthusiasm. With over 40 years of heritage as one of the Hunters leading producers, it has under its belt more than 40 national and international accolades. 

What is unique to Briar Ridge is the science behind the vineyard and the grapes. Owner Dr John Davis, a former oil geologist, uses his knowledge of rock and soil formations to ensure his vines develop the best fruit possible. Unlike any other winemaker, John core drills all his vineyards and uses this information to plot his land. He identifies patches to establish vines that create unique parcels of wine. This insight not only helps the current vintage but also ensures a sustainable future for his vineyards. Karl Stockhausen has been a winemaker in the Hunter Valley for over 50 years. Today he continues his involvement with quality wines by selecting the fruit and supervising the winemaking process of the Signature range that bears his name creating a Semillon, Chardonnay and Shiraz each year to maintain and celebrate the traditional wines that have become synonymous with the Hunter Valley. 

The Stockhausen Shiraz is made to be a classic example of Hunter Shiraz - dark, brooding, savoury and elegant. The blend of two different blocks provide a full fruit spectrum with the dark berry and plum spice notes from the Dairy Hill and the Red Hill block providing bright crunchy acidity, cassis and spice notes.

Tasting Note: Classic Hunter acidity and elegance provide structure and length, with French Oak adding layers of texture and spice notes of clive and nutmeg.
