2018 Marricks Wines New Raz

Style: Shiraz Nouveau

Region: Hunter Valley

Vintage:  2018

It all started with a couple of beers at a local brewery that ignited Marrickville’s first village wine.

Winemaker James Becker (Becker Wines, Oakvale) launches his collaboration series with long time friend and local cinematographer José Alkon. José wanted to create a unique wine only available in his village of Marrickville and surrounds that captured the essence of the area: approachable, exciting, light but full of character. James’ answer: Beaujolais Nouveau, but instead of traditional Gamay grapes use the geographically nearest grape variety, Hunter Valley Shiraz. New Raz was born.
