Wine Tasting at Hunter Wine Lab

Hunter Wine Lab, launched in 2020 by Nathan Heuston and Leonie Di Lorenzo, represents a modern take on winemaking in the Hunter Valley. Blending traditional winemaking techniques with contemporary approaches, focusing on both old and new world varietals. Their philosophy emphasises minimal intervention while enhancing the wine's character through new world research and development. Hunter Wine Lab produces a range of wines including traditional varietals like Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Shiraz, and Cabernet Sauvignon, alongside newer, fun varietals such as Prosecco in Rosé style, Vermentino, and Sangiovese.

The winery integrates old world methods like open fermentation and hand and feet plunging with new techniques such as the use of heritage yeasts and organic fining agents. This approach aims to respect and showcase the true qualities of the fruit and the terroir, creating expressive and innovative wines that reflect both the heritage and future of winemaking.
