Huntington Estate Tim Stevens Shiraz 2009



Sitting pretty at nine years young. It was great to line up this 2009 release alongside its 2015 and 2016 siblings. The flagship wine for Huntington Estate named after the winemaker himself, this 2009 is only available to wine club members.



Long, soft and flavoursome. Coming off 49-year-old vines, age has had its way with this beauty and softened it a treat. Deliberately built to last, there are still many years left in the bag too.

The fruit is elegant and those hard Mudgee tannins which Tim Stevens says take 3-4 years to relax are nothing but a soft caress now. Pencils, dense plums, dates and savoury herbs are among a host of characteristics coming together. All elements have found their equilibrium and work in unison. Bliss.
