Huntington Estate Tim Stevens Shiraz 2015

It was great to line up this 2015 release beside the 2009 and 2016. The flagship wine for Huntington Estate named after the winemaker himself. Three years young with a bright future.

Red fruits light up the first whiff. Think baked raspberry, dried cranberries and dark cherries. Milk chocolate and whispers of caramel lay an early platform. Dense plummy fruit rolls out sheets of pleasure. Some char and meatiness play second fiddle. Well handled oak curls up in the bleachers. Fine spices ride a neat trail to a long and moreish finish. Tim Stevens says Mudgee tannins need up to four years to settle. Edging on powdery, there's still some fruit clinging on at the death. A wine setting a fine course for its future. Longevity certainly in its genes.
