The Range

The HIP SIP range of fortified wines are made to capture the attention of young consumers and bring new relevance to this unique wine style. The range consists of two varieties - HIP SIP Muscat and HIP SIP Tawny. Both wines are perfect for enjoying on their own, pairing with chocolate desserts or mixed into modern and classic cocktails.

The Wine

The wine has a tawny colour with hints of red. The aroma is a mix of ripe berry fruit, with rancio characters from extended barrel maturation. On the palate there is ripe fruit giving a generous mouth feel with hints of vanilla and chocolate. The wine has an attractive drying finish.

Variety

Predominantly made from Grenache, Shiraz and Mataro grapes, with added brandy spirit, which is used to fortify the wine.

Winemaking

Hip Sip is a blend of a number of vintages, and are often classified by age, e.g. “10 year old”, which indicates that on average the wine has been aging in wooden barrels for at least ten years. Hip Sip Tawny is made from red grapes that are crushed and left to ferment on their skins to pick up the red colour. When the juice is partially fermented and retaining the correct level of residual sugar, spirit is added which stops the fermentation. The wine is then put into wooden barrels for ageing. As it ages and the solids precipitate to the bottom of the barrels the wine loses its youthful red colour and becomes a “tawny” colour.

Food Matching

Nip, swig or slurp with coffee and cheese, mix into your favourite cocktail or savour on its own.

Cellaring Potential

Hip Sip does its ageing in the old oak barrels prior to bottling and will not age further in the bottle. Once opened it should be consumed in about a month.

"Love the packaging of the Hip Sip, aimed to lure a younger generation to fortifieds: hope it's working. While this is pleasant, it's an uncomplicated rendition of a tawny, the colour has plenty of rouge indicating a young wine - not sure of the base age although the grapes are mostly grenache, shiraz and mataro. Spiced fruit, a waft of brandy with some pepper and ginger; sweet and simple palate." Jane Faulkner, Halliday Wine Companion, August 2018
