2019 Huntington Estate Cabernet Sauvignon Shiraz
Deep and rich.
VARIETY This classic Australian blend has a long and illustrious history here at Huntington - we've had some trophy winners in our time. Cabernet provides structure, line and length while the Shiraz smoothes, softens and fills out the mid-palate, creating a wine of superb balance. We are very committed to this blend and will be regularly releasing. We can barely keep up with demand for these Estate range Cabernet / Shiraz blends.
