A vibrant, full bodied wine, Whisper Valley is the result of an amazing collaboration between the hotel, leading winemaker Grant Burge and renowned South Australian artist, Tom Gleghorn. The wine was hand-crafted exclusively for Hyatt Regency Adelaide by Grant Burge, whilst Tom Gleghorn was the creative talent behind the eye-catching artwork.
A premium shiraz, Whisper Valley was born from the hotel’s passion for good food and company, and dedication to offering guests a complete and memorable dining experience. Great care and much attention to detail were given during the blending process to ensure a high quality product, with the hotel’s sommelier, Louise Radman, combining forces with Grant Burge to produce a wine for the enjoyment of guests. Rich, briary mulberry and fruit of the forest are supported by complex layers of vanilla and chocolate. Incredibly soft, fine tannins and superb structure mean the wine is drinking well and has the potential to age long into the future. Whilst only recently released, Whisper Valley is already holding it’s own amongst the state’s best, and has emerged as a top seller in the hotel’s restaurants.
Whisper Valley is proudly South Australian. Made from prized Barossa shiraz, the name of the wine was chosen to reflect the ‘whisper of the revered old shiraz wines’ through the Barossa Valley district. This link is further illustrated in the label artwork, which features a rare Diamond Firetail Finch, hand painted especially for the project by artist Tom Gleghorn. The finch is also characteristic to the Barossa Valley district.
The concept and production of Whisper Valley ties closely with Hyatt Regency Adelaide’s long standing commitment and dedication to the South Australia wine industry. In 1987, the hotel initiated the prestigious South Australian Wine of the Year Awards to celebrate and recognise the state’s top producers. The awards, which are highly respected by both industry and consumers, celebrated their 20th anniversary last year with a record 806 entries from across the state.
Whisper Valley is available exclusively from Hyatt Regency Adelaide and takes pride of place on each of the hotel’s restaurant wine lists. In addition, wine lovers also have an unique opportunity to add the wine to their own cellar by purchasing from the hotel.
