Ribs & Reds - Bluegrass aged vs new masterclass

Throughout May and June, visit our Hunter Valley Cellar Door and explore how exceptional red wines age and improve.

You can explore Saddler's iconic Bluegrass Collection and experience how these wines evolve with cellaring.

These full bodied red wines are renowned for their exceptional aging potential, that develop a greater depth of flavour and complexity over time. 

We’ve carefully selected the best wines from the finest vintages to reserve and cellar with confidence knowing these wines, with time and patience will evolve and mature beautifully.

Join us for RIBS & REDS - a wine and food pairing experience hosted by our wine expert, who guides you through six iconic red wines including new releases versus cellar releases, aged for eight years. Discover how time in the cellar has transformed each wine along with learning the tips and tricks of tasting wine like an expert.

The Bluegrass Collection is crafted for longevity. Upon release, it boasts bold and vibrant black fruit flavors that are balanced by firm tannins, giving the wine a powerful full bodied structure.

As the wine ages, it transforms and becomes increasingly complex and refined. The tannins begin to soften, allowing the fruit flavors to meld together in perfect harmony, making the wine richer yet smoother. The finish becomes longer and more lingering, leaving a remarkable impression with each passing year.
