Hungerford Hill Shiraz 2018

Bread and Butter here for Hungerford Hill.

Hungerford Hill, Shiraz, Hunter Valley, 2018

Smoky notes at first: almost acrid before black cherry, charred plum, fresh earth, dark toasted spices: nutmeg and cinnamon with bourbon/vanilla tinged oak. Modern Hunter. Smooth and medium-full with lifted fruit, yet there’s no denying the Hunter bloodline with dusty tannins. Handsomely constructed and youthfully tight.

RRP: $45
Alc 14%
Rating: 18.25/20
