Majestic Meets the McGuigans

Neil McGuiganRecently, the opportunity to film the harvest in the McGuigan vineyards at the Hunter Valley presented itself, so we sent in a wine enthusiast (who handily happened to be a camera man!) to go and meet Neil McGuigan who kindly gave us an interview, whilst Chief winemaker, Peter Hall, showed us around.

With a long family history in the industry and with a whole host of awards under their belts including Australian Producer of the Year & International Winemaker of the Year (International Wine and Spirit Competition 2009) as well as International White Winemaker of the Year (International Wine Challenge 2009), The McGuigans know a thing or two about winemaking.

McGuigan Handmade ShirazIn the last few years, the McGuigan winemakers have been working on The Shortlist: a select range of wines with each bottle individually numbered. Small parcels of very high quality grapes are selected and a traditional hands-on techniques employed to produce a stunning range of award-winning wines. We’ve been able to snap up an exclusive parcel of these wines from the 2008 vintage and are offering them to our online customers first.

Here, Neil & Peter talk us through The Shortlist wines and also tell us about their premium wine: the Handmade Shiraz

Update: The Shortlist wines have proved very popular and have now been removed from the website. The small remaining quantity is being distributed to a few stores. If you wish to find out whether there’s any left in your area, please contact your local store.
