Gundog Estate is a boutique producer of premium Semillon and Shiraz.
Sourcing fruit from some of the best vineyards in the Hunter, Hilltops and Canberra wine regions in New South Wales, Gundog Estate engage with passionate growers that work tirelessly to deliver the best fruit possible. Their growers also firmly believe in sustainable vineyard practices, with a view to leaving the land in a better condition for the next generation.
In the winery, there is a thoughtful combination of new and old world practices to deliver high quality, innovative wines. These wines represent some of the best examples of regional, modern Australian style, produced on a boutique scale. Fermentation with naturally occurring yeast, and partial fermentation of whites on skins, are two key practices winemaker Matt Burton has implemented to great effect. Reds are fermented in open tanks, hand plunged, and undergo shorter maturation periods in premium French oak puncheons illustrating a combined traditional / modern approach to winemaking delivering wines that strike a fine balance between fruit flavour and complexity. These are wines that tell a story of the season and region. The wines should offer drinking appeal from day one, but also have the potential age gracefully.
