Huntington Estate Shiraz 2014

Clever Shiraz. There's so much to sink your teeth into. Great fruit and generosity for days, Mudgee hitting the high hats.

From a warm and dry vintage, the vines for this wine were planed in the 1970s. In traditional fashion, this Huntington red was released with a minimum four years bottle age.

Blackberries plus sweet blackcurrants. Those dark fruits cut loose and invite you to get knee deep. A couple of days of tasting presents a wine with longevity in its veins. All elements have softened demanding that you just want in. Tannins still a little firm, but Mudgee tannins need years to relax - just ask winemaker Tim Stevens who explains it beautifully. Top stuff.

Drink now with a good decant to a decade+
