Wines presently available
Panton Hill Sauvignon Blanc 2014
Cellaring excellent to drink now or in a few years
This premium Sauvignon Blanc has a beautiful nose of Tropical, White Peach and Citrus fruit. The silky palate reflects the nose with added mineral flavor and a long finish. Inviting as an aperitif and perfectly suited to a wide range of foods from poultry and sea food dishes to Asian cuisine.
Panton Hill Chardonnay 2014
Cellar 2-10 years, Drink 2015-2024
This unoaked Chardonnay has the complex creaminess that results from malolactic fermentation. This is beautifully balanced against the fruit notes. The bouquet shows complex aromas of honeysuckle, peach, and citrus. These fruits carry through to the palate and combine with nutty characters and hints of butterscotch to create a multilayered smooth, round mouth feel. Try this with cheeses, seafood or a creamy Spaghetti Carbonara.
Panton Hill Pinot Noir 2014
Cellar 2 to 8 years, Best Drink 2016-2023
Our minimally filtered 2010 Pinot Noir has been produced using the process of carbonic maceration and whole bunch fermentation with wild yeast, first employed in France in the 1930’s. The result is a soft, earthy, style exhibiting cherry and plum aromas mingled with forest floor notes. These lead beautifully into a rich, complex and velvety palate which is further enhanced with a fine balance of old oak and spice. Try this with a good Brie, Camembert or Duck.
Panton Hill Cabernet Sauvignon- Merlot- Franc 2010 Bordeaux blend
Cellar 4-15 years, Drink 2016-2028
This Cabernet-Merlot-Franc blend is bursting with rich dark berry fruit perfectly balanced with smooth, well-weighted tannins. The palate is complex and lingering. This wine is classically French in style and is drinking well now, but will continue to develop depth and complexity over the next few years. Try this with lamb shanks, a rich stew or a good quality Cheddar.
Stockbrokers Shiraz 2010
Cellar 4-14 years, Drink 2014-2024
This beautifully balanced wine has a deep, rich palate of black cherries and chocolate. This interweaves seamlessly with the smooth tannins, that give this wine its velvety mouth feel. Great length and good complexity culminate in a soft, spicy finish.
An excellent partner to beef, game dishes or mature cheeses. Don’t think of eating a steak without it.
ALMOST SOLD OUT
Panton Hill Verdelho 2018
Cellaring: Fresh and soft in its youth. Ages gracefully into a rich, complex wine. Cellar < 10 years.
You’ll find voluptuous aromas of tropical fruit and ripe nectarines, as well as honeysuckle in this fine Verdelho. It is un-oaked so as extend the beautiful fruit character. The aromas carry through to the palate which is long and crisp. Because of its long ripening time, a surprising complexity and rounded mouth feel reminiscent of a French Sauterne will develop, and become more pronounced as the wine ages. It will make a fine partner to cheeses, smoked foods, seafood and spicy food. Because of its subtle sweetness it is equally at home with a light fruit dessert… Just remember the rule… wines served with desserts should be sweeter than the dessert they accompany.
Stockbrokers Shiraz 2014
Cellar 4-12 years, Drink 2018-2026
Still true to the Panton Hill style, this well balanced wine is fruit driven and rich. The tannins are softening nicely to give the smooth, velvety mouth feel expected of a Panton Hill, red as it matures. Good length and complexity characterize this wine with its black cherry and spice notes. Food choices as above in the reserve Shiraz.
Dorothy’s Choice Muscat (average of 20 years in oak)
Further cellaring is unnecessary as this wine is already barrel aged.
This luscious, complex, fortified wine has been blended from Rutherglen Brown Muscat with an average age of 20 years. Meticulous cellaring at Panton Hill over the years, along with intuitive blending, has resulted in a wine with depth, complexity and richness that reflects that time and care.Age is the major contributor, but youth also plays its part. The freshness and fruit of younger vintages add their touch to this luscious prima donna full of raisin, toasted almond and toffee characters. This wine is excellent on its own, after dinner with a rich dessert, coffee or a creamy, blue cheese.
Aromatica – In the style of Marsala Superiore
Drink now or enjoy at your leisure.
Originating in Sicily,and created by an English wine merchant, Marsala was popularized in Europe by Vice-Admiral Nelson, and remained popular for over a century. Despite an era when it was relegated to the kitchen, Marsala is enjoying a return to its position of prestige with poor quality copies being superseded by versions more akin to the original. Panton Hill Winery has been creating the original style as Aromatica for over 20 years, with a minimum oak barrel aging of 10 years. The result is a dark, rich and complex wine filled with the aromas of raisin, butterscotch and Christmas pudding This is the traditional wine used in Tiramisu, is wonderful in a trifle, with a short black and ice-cream, with chocolate or just on its own. V- Admiral Nelson would approve.
Orams Wish- Chardonnay Liqueur
Drink now or at leisure
This was named after Oram’s Reef, the richest gold seam in Panton Hill in the gold rush days. This unique, golden Chardonnay Liqueur is subtle but rich. Its smooth, mouth filling flavors of honey and crème caramel have a hint of grape flower and fig aromas, which remind you of a warm spring day.
Delicious on its own or with cheeses , chocolate or maybe Sticky Date pudding.
Blanc De Noir 2014
This rich, light salmon coloured Blanc De Noir is a rare style in the stable of bottle fermented, sparkling wines, made entirely from Pinot Noir grapes without skin fermentation. It has an intense nose of quince, apricots, honey and toasted bread. In the mouth it shows beautiful length and richness with a rounded, creamy finish. The mature notes that develop early in this style do not indicate a short bottle life. This wine might win over a hardened red drinker.
Good with smoked salmon, truffles, mushrooms, creamy cheeses, cured meats and just about any seafood including nicely cooked calamari, fish and chips!
Sparkling Stockbrokers Shiraz 2014
Drink 2019- 2024
