Huntington Estate [Mudgee NSW], Tim Stevens Signature Shiraz Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

This Flagship cracker red blend elevates & celebrates Huntington Estate's 50th year of establishment and winemaker Tim Stevens' achievements at that level.
Chocolate brioche, maraschino cherries and mixed herbs immediately imbue the olfactory senses.   
An enticing sweet and sour front palate sweetness [14.7% Alc] allows the power and subtlety of the finely crafted blend of varietal characters to seduce the mid-palate.
There is a subtle transition from seductive smoothness to mid / long palate balance, structure and opulence... a steel fist in a leather glove
This well-assembled, balanced and integrated flagship powerhouse premium blend delivers smoothness now. It also shows promise of longevity and further integration over the next few years.
