Nose to Tail Red and the Nose to Tail wines takes the standard varieties in the Hunter Valley and turns them into something innovative and contemporary for the consumer. For example, taking a variety, like Semillon, that isn’t normally for everyone and turning it into something that is approachable for everybody. Just like nose-to-tail cooking the brand aims to showcase how varieties can be made into unique, enjoyable styles that previously may have been overlooked.
Usher Tinkler is one of Australia’s most dynamic young winemakers. Along with his grandfather and father, he is apart of three generations of farming expertise; the dairyman, the cattleman and the winemaker. They all share the same name and united passion for the land. As a tribute to this, Usher Tinkler Wines was born. Usher and wife Ebony bought and renovated the original Pokolbin Church, that was built in 1905, to create a place to showcase their new brand. Shifting a gear in the Hunter Valley the wines are authentic yet adventurous. Blurring the lines between traditional and contemporary winemaking. Wines that create discussion – born for sociability.

With sweet dark fruits and spice of Shiraz, Usher Tinkler has beefed up the flavour with Pinot Noir to create this juicy all-rounder. This artisanal wine blend is equally enjoyable with wagyu carpaccio or barbequed T-bone.
