2013 Huntington Estate Special Reserve Shiraz
Vineyard / Winemaking: Elegant, harmonious, complex.
Aroma: Fruit-driven, with well-balanced aromas of blackberries, violets and a note of pepper.
Palate: The fruit is beautiful and intense. Soft, fine tannins give good grip, a long, smooth mouthfeel and a velvety finish.
Cellar: A subtle wine of substance drinking beautifully now, will age for a further 15+ years.
95/100 "Deep colour; there are enthusiastic contributions of fruit, oak and tannins; because these are all in balance, the Reserve classification makes eminent sense, underwritten by lovely, glossy black cherry and blackberry flavours running through the length of the palate." James Halliday
"... inky purple hues and enticing berry pastille scents. Intense, ripe plum flavour rolls onto the front of the palate, blackcurrant,Turkish delight chocolate, cloves and mocha oak chime in on the middle palate and smooth dusty tannins home in at the finish. DRINK WITH: lamb crown roast. AGEING: 15 years." Newcastle Herald, John Lewis, Oct 2017
