Australia’s oldest wine region boasts vines first planted in the 1820s and presided over by generations of famous wine names like McWilliam, Tyrrell and Wyndham. Australian wine pioneers like Maurice O’Shea, Audrey Wilkinson and Len Evans put the Hunter on the global wine map as did Sydney wine merchant Leo Buring who marketed the first commercially successful Hunter Valley Semillon under the label ‘Rhine Gold’ in the 1960s and Murray Tyrrell whose first commercial bottling of Chardonnay signalled the beginning of the Australian Chardonnay craze. The region hangs its hat on its iconic and world-famous Semillon style and is also famous for producing light and elegant styles from a wide variety of grapes including Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon and Verdelho.
