Description

The Essendon Football Club and Hooker Wines have collaborated to release our Cale Hooker 200 Game milestone wine. In 2019, a small selection of the finest fruit was kept separate to release at a later time with an eye to Cale’s upcoming football milestone.

  • Commemorative wine made from a selection of the best fruit from the excellent 2019 vintage.
  • The Swan Valley enjoyed near perfect vintage conditions in 2019- a mild season without any extreme heat  and premium quality fruit ripening.
  • 100% Shiraz grapes, hand- picked from the original Lot113 vineyard planted by the family in 2002.
  • Matured in new American Oak Hogsheads for 9 months.
  • Chock full of flavour, with great intensity and length of flavour.
  • Only 300, 6 bottle cases made.

Limited Release of only 300 cases of 6 bottles, don’t miss out on your chance to have this special limited edition wine.                                                                 .

The 2019 vintage in Swan Valley was a near perfect one, with mild weather ensuring maximum quality. Hand-picked, fermented on skins and then enjoying maturation in new American Oak Hogsheads, this one-off wine displays wonderful regional and intense varietal characters and although drinking well now, will age beautifully in the cellar.

“The wine is a celebration of my career to share with family, friends and everyone to do with the club, including the fans.” Cale Hooker
