“Philip wanted time to fulfill his dream – to make small parcels of wine that can stand amongst the finest wines from anywhere. This reflects his philosophy on wine making: select an exceptional site and the right varieties. Marry the vineyard and the winemaking. Every wine should be placed on it’s own canvas and not replicate others. You should be guiding the direction of the wine, not controlling it, always challenging the achievements. In style, Philip wants to make wines that are elegant, vibrant, varietal, intense and complex.”
HOOSEGG Tasting by Ferment
$50 PER PERSON | 1-6 PERSONS | 1 HOUR
Fullfilling his dream, Philip has established a small winery, utilising parcels of select fruit from the Koomooloo vineyard which he established 30 years ago, state-of-the-art winemaking equipment, the best new oak – and all the lessons learned making wine over the past 60 years.
This new venture is called HOOSEGG. Why? Well, the ‘HOO’ is Philip – to avoid any confusion with Philip Shaw Wines – and the ‘EGG’ is to symbolize ‘a new beginning’.
