Huntington Estate Signature Tim Stevens Shiraz Cabernet 2017

A 50/50 blend of Mudgee fruit to showcase the best the region can produce. This is an excellent Shiraz Cabernet blend.

The Shiraz saw 60% new American oak and the Cabernet saw 70% aged French oak with a total of 18 months in oak.

Upon opening, expressive aromas of cedar, clove and caramel were prominent and bounding along. A day on and these were more tame with added scents of bark and lead pencil. An ever so slight mintiness partnered the dried herbs too.

The fruit is sleek through the mouth. Beautifully balanced on its feet, it maneuvers and swerves covering every crevice with absolute ease. Superfine tannins feather the palate on exit leaving a long and delectable finish. The urge to reach for another sip is irresistible. Class all the way.

Drink 2021 to a decade+
