Huntington Estate Shiraz 2011

Mudgee is well known for its “gutsy reds” yet this, whilst still earthy, doesn’t dig too far into the subsoil.

Stalky, sappy, woody with brown spices, plums and heady oak. Quite spicy and peppery on the palate. Earthy mouth coating tannins keep the Mudgee legend alive before leaving plenty of chocolate and brambly red/black fruits. Tastes a little hotter than the 13.5%, but ultimately this is already medium term cellared and those tannins aren’t shifting anytime soon. Can handle a couple more years laying down.

RRP: $25

Alc: 13.5%
