Classic Hunter Valley wines, reimagined

For 50 years Briar Ridge has been crafting quintessential Hunter Valley wines. Nestled in the picturesque sub-region of Mount View they enjoy a unique micro-climate that adds intensity and distinction to their wines. Winemaking is now in the hands of local young-gun of wine, Alex Beckett, who is pushing Briar Ridge into a new and exciting era.

"From the southeast-facing Dairy Hill site. Thinned, green harvested, hand picked and rigorously sorted, the result 37% down on usual volumes. Wild-yeast fermented warmer than the regional standard, all radical in these parts. Left on lees for 4 months post-ferment. I adore the sentiment behind this, but the textural build has been pushed radically. Watch the neighbours! But, I love this. A sign of the future rather than the past. A bright one! Scents of tatami, porcini, lanolin, citrus peel, glazed quince and gin and tonic. White pepper, again. Delicious. Rich for the idiom. Palate-staining finish. Thoroughly impressive." Ned Goodwin
