2014 Huntington Estate Shiraz

I don’t receive many wines to review but, you know what, some of those that I have received have opened my eyes up to some winemakers and wines I would not normally, if ever, get to see in Hobart.  I am so grateful to Define Wine for re-introducing me to the wines of Huntington Estate and the mighty fine work of Tim Stevens.

It’s great on the nose.  Even at four years of age, it is still pretty fresh berry-ish and fragrant right here.  It smells like it’s going to lay it on thick and rich preparing you for what’s in store.

A mélange (coming from me that’s a bit posh) of dark, blue and red fruits make up the flavours of this beauty.  There is definitely lush and fresh blackberries that make you feel as though you are rolling them around your mouth.  A blueberry character is there for me too and having mentioned red fruits, it was a ‘fruit freshness” suggesting age-ability (I hope you know what I mean).

The tannins don’t want to be forgotten either.  They make an appearance but in balance with the damn good fruit that pulls them into line as they both march side by side in unison.  Very much enjoyed this wine.  Get onto it!
