Huntington Estate Shiraz 2013

Huntington Estate’s Tim Stevens reckons that Mudgee’s winemakers should “go with the tannins, not against them.” Sound advice.

Huntington Estate, Shiraz, Mudgee, 2013

HuntingtonEstate_ShirazAt 4 years of age, this current release smells of sweet fresh earth, chocolate chunks, flannel, blueberry, plum sauce and roasted nuts. Deliciously darkly fruited with liqueur plum highlights, the mocha oak is full and amply supports those plentiful, fine tannins without getting in the way. Perfect for right now and a wine that will continue to open and evolve. Somewhat of a bargain.

RRP: $26
Alc: 13.5%
Rating: 17.5/20
