Gundog Estate Hunter’s Shiraz 2021

Fruit coming from two of Pokolbin’s older vineyards, in Tinkler’s and Will’s Hill.  Gundog are now a Carbon Neutral certified winery.

Gundog Estate, Hunter’s, Shiraz, Hunter Valley, 2021


Deep ruby with near clear edged rim. Offering a yin/yang of savoury and fruit elements: Clove spice, dust, buttery rich oak, dark cherry, small red plums, game meat, gunflint and lavender flower. Straight as a die, medium bodied tannin structure with that red flesh wrapped tightly around the core. Almost austere for the now, time should see unfurling.

RRP: $45
Alc: 13.2%
Rating: 18.25/20 (93/100)
