A journey through the Hungerford Hill 'Fish Cage' selection
Established in 1967 Hungerford Hill is a boutique estate in the Hunter Valley, Australia’s oldest wine region. Hungerford Hill has a proud reputation for producing distinguished wines and providing a memorable cellar door experience. Guided by accomplished Winemaker Bryan Currie, Hungerford Hill’s able team produce authentic wines packed with character and interest, with a focus on New South Wales’ cool climate regions (Hilltops & Tumbarumba).
In early December 2016 Sam Arnaout purchased Hungerford Hill and will continue the focus on the NSW regions of the Hunter Valley, Hilltops and Tumbarumba. Hungerford Hill’s winery is a landmark of the Hunter Valley region, with its unique barrel-shaped tasting room and underground working cellar.
FISH CAGE - PINOT NOIR SHIRAZ
2018, TUMBARUMBA, HUNTER VALLEY
This Pinot Noir from the cool climate of Tumbarumba is fragrant with red cherries and spice, blended with the ripe blackberry and plum fruit of Hunter Valley Shiraz. The resultant wine is a seamless blend of the two varieties which has both character and elegance.

2017, HUNTER VALLEY
Picked at night and gently pressed to maintain it’s freshness and natural acidity. Exhibiting a fragrance of green apple, unripe melon and honeysuckle and fresh bread. Delicate palate with a clean crisp finish.
