William Henry Shiraz
Here at Ernest Hill we produce three styles of Shiraz.
From the Shareholders block comes a medium style of Shiraz. This usually spends 5-8 months in a combination of new and one year old French and American oak, and is further enhanced by the addition of a small amount of Viognier (thus giving the wine a hint of the Rhone Valley style).
From the William Henry block comes our traditional Hunter style. 100% Shiraz matured in brand new French and American oak, for close to 12 months to produce a heavier, longer term cellaring style.
From the Wreckers Block comes a light style of Shiraz. This Shiraz was matured in older oak for only 6 months to make a softer, more European style red.
