2008 Premium Wooded Chardonnay $35.00
One Silver Medal and two Bronze Medals
Released in July 2011 after being awarded silver and two bronze medals at Timber Towns and Cowra shows. Mid golden straw colour with brilliant clarity, a fine aromatic nose combining lime citrus fruits with underlying butterscotch characters with toasty creamy oak (100% new French oak). The palate is complex and dominated by flavours of melon and citrus fruits, combined with spicy oak and hints of butterscotch. Great mouthfeel and excellent persistence of flavour with a clean finish. This wine is sleek and succulent and is a sipper rather than a quaffer. To be enjoyed especially with food and goes with with pasta, Enjoy!!

SparkleArse $40.00 SOLD OUT!!!!!!!!!!
This premium sparkling wine has been crafted (at great cost to the establishment .. but who cares, we all love champers!!) from a blend of 60% Chardonnay and 40% Pinot Noir and matured for a time on new French oak before being kept on lees for a minimum of 18 months before degorgement.
The wine has a pale straw yellow colour with a hint of salmon. It has a fine continuous bead with a vigorous mousse. On the nose there are fragrant cut hay characters with hints of citrus, great activity. The front palate is steely with a lovely mid palate texture, hints of guava and lemon. The rear palate is creamy with a fresh crisp finish and a hint of sweetness.
Remember, a day without ... is like a day without laughter. We suggest a little of each!!
Riverbed Fizz $20.00
This is just a nice little quaffer if you feel the need for a little fizz in your day!! It is a Brut reserve style showing rich fruit and soft full flavours with complex yeasty characters.
Give yourself a little lift!!!
Our first ever White Port!! $25.00
A long gestation period (this wine has been barreled since 2005) has resulted in this very smooth and rich white port. With lovely apricot characters with a hint of orange, the flavours coat the palate with an overall caramel overtone. Phil is very proud of this wine!! Just imagine sitting under the Koolabah tree on a hot afternoon with a large glass of this with lots of ice!! YUM!!
Aged Cell Door Tawny Port $20.00
We have named this Port after the cell Door from the old Pemberton jail (long ago demolished) which we have now installed at Hidden River. It has a few interesting notations on it, no doubt made in hindsight, the sort of gems that come to mind after some sober hours of enforced contemplation or possibly after a few glasses of this good port! Made in a soft fruity style and VERY smooth, it's great for a little late night contemplation or just sipping, sitting quietly watching the ducks graze after a Hidden River lunch.
The Muskateer $18.00
This blend of Muscat plus another special but secret "ancient" wine should be enjoyed with good friends, cheese or one of Sandy's Icky Sticky Date Puddings. After one tipple, you feel like another, but remember, moderation in all things.
Love to live and live to love!! YUM!! All for one and one for all!!
