Huntington Estate currently makes a Special Reserve Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon. These Estate grown, made and bottled wines represent the best Huntington has to offer in any given vintage.
After 45 vintages, we can generally predict which Blocks in our vineyard will produce the best fruit. The grapes for the Special Reserve wines come from the best blocks in the vineyard (best clones, planted on the best sites). The vines are carefully pruned by our own Vineyard team for low yields and extra care is paid to vine health.
In the winery, these superior grapes are also given the best treatment. Tim and team invest the more time crafting these wines. They are fermented in open oak fermenters, they spend two years in the finest oak barrels and are handled with utmost care.
