2013 Huntington Estate Special Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon
Vineyard / Winemaking: Fruit from Blocks 3 and 9 of the Huntington Estate vineyard were fermented in a wooden cuve; spent 17 days on skins and 21 months in French barriques (30% new).
Description: Varietal, exceptional.
Aroma: Deep purple in colour, the wine has eucalypt and herbaceous notes, capsicum finishing with elegant blackcurrant fruit with a hint of toasty vanilla from the oak.
Palate: Cassis is backed up by eucalypt characters. Elegant and smooth tannins are supported by lively acids. The palate is like velvet, with astringent and smooth components well balanced, and a long and fruity finish.
Cellar: Drinking beautifully now, will cellar for to 2036 if you can wait!
