Gold Medal – New Zealand International Wine Show 2020
Haselgrove 'H' is one of those fantastically moreish, soft and juicy Shiraz with wonderful dark fruits, a bit of chocolate and spice, a touch of oak, but most of all, superb drinkability. And now with a Gold Medal at the 2020 NZIWS you know it is great value!
Winery notes (2018 Vintage)
"Soft approachable style with fresh fruit flavours and subtle oak. Youthful and intense, this wine displays generous ripe plum and red berry fruits with subtle spice and chocolate. These vibrant fruit characters are complimented with soft and juicy tannins and a long dry finish."
4 ½ Stars & 91/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, February 2020 (2018 Vintage)
"Delightfully charming and fruit forward, the wine shows Black Doris plum, raspberry, vanilla and toasted almond characters on the nose, leading to a succulent palate that’s plump and beautifully rounded. It’s flavoursome and friendly, making it fabulously drinkable. At its best: now to 2023."

NZIWS (2016 Vintage)
"A splendid juicy attack of plums and blackcurrants with mint chocolate, toasted walnut, warm spice and floral notes. Succulent, rounded and silky. lovely flow and very friendly."
4 Stars & Best Buy Cuisine Australian Shiraz Tasting, June 2018 (2016 Vintage)
"From the first sniff, this multi-vineyard blend hollers ‘Aussie shiraz!’ with that familiar, traditional sweet blackberry perfume. In the mouth dark ripe berryfruit and prune notes, along with hints of spice and mint, dominate proceedings. It’s a straightforward, fruit-driven style, firmly textured. Excellent value."
