Looking for my annual Thanksgiving bottles to haul to Rocky Point. This is the 1st to try and will definately be in the running fo a box buy. From the Hunter Valley a perfect example of the varietal. Also it doesn't hurt that they are supporters of the "Pink Awareness Breast Cancer" network. Will be on the short list. WW

Do you know WW if this was the Hope the Ripper Shiraz? Perhaps they make a basic Shiraz pluz the Ripper version. I have posted twice on the Hope the Ripper which I really enjoyed.

Don't think so WOW. This is tied in with the "Pink Ribbon" breast cancer awareness program. WW

Just getting a chance to check in.... If memory serves, the "Ripper" is from Western Australia. However, it is actually shipped, I believe, in juice form to the Hunter Valley in which they make the wine.

It's been awhile since I actually tasted this and heard the story, so I could be wrong.

You're correct Brappy.
