From the single vineyard of Sweetwater Ridge. Originally tasted blind as part of a 2014 Shiraz round up.

Rich deep colour and pungency and vibrancy. Purple dusty Hunter violets, with a thick eye fillet steak slab of silky meatiness. The oak is there: a slight burnt toffee sweetness, but not detracting. Ripe palate with concentrated plum and sprinkle of white pepper, but the dustiness makes the wine show the true Hunter skin. Needs time.

RRP: $35

Alc: 14%
