Huntington Estate [Mudgee NSW], Basket Dried Shiraz 2016

Another powerhouse cracker Basket-Dried Shiraz from Huntington Estate and Tim Stevens' winemaking team.
With already 3 years of development, this "Amarone" style Shiraz immediately teases the senses with sweet red fruit, mixed herbs, mocha & black pepper both on the nose and front palate. Wafts of floralness add intrigue and interest.
This tightly structured, fine-grained, premium Shiraz reflects the grippy yet smooth expression of varietal regionality and winemaking technique.  
The muscular 15.5% Alc is supported by the well-balanced massaging of fine tannins, grippy acid and fruit primacy   
Currently not one for the faint-hearted, this thumping Shiraz, which will continue to evolve and please over the next few years, is a good match to brawny protein dishes
