Richard Hamilton 'Ghost Hill' Shiraz 2019
Special Price $34.00 Regular Price $38.00
A brand spanking new wine from Richard Hamilton, made from their 50-year-old Ghost Hill Vineyard. This offers a clear step up in intensity from their Little Road and Leconfield Shirazes. There is an exuberant perfume of plums along with white pepper on the nose. The palate is fruit intense with excellent length and superfine tannins. Great now but has a long life ahead of it.

The Hamilton family have a rich winemaking heritage dating back to 1837. In addition to owning Richard Hamilton Wines, they also founded and own Leconfield wines in the Coonawarra. The first Richard Hamilton was originally a businessman in the UK with a penchant for smuggling Bordeaux into the UK. In 1837 he fled for Australia with customs hot on his heels and by 1841 produced South Australia’s first commercial wine. Generations of expansion and commercial success followed, and the brand kept moving south from Adelaide, eventually settling in the McLaren Vale. These days, drawing on a heap of high quality vineyards (many of which are old vine) Richard Hamilton produces a range of wines which are both superb in quality and excellent value for money.
