2019 Huntington Estate Grand Reserve Basket Press Shiraz

When it comes to a combination lock, you have to get the numbers right and in the correct order, to release the lock and access what is being secured. If you don’t, it just doesn’t work and, let’s face it, you’re in trouble. Thankfully, most people select a combination that means something to them and is never forgotten.

This is a perfect example of a wine where every ‘character’ has lined up, combining perfectly to unlock the personality and quality that would have been hidden when it was first made.  Clearly, winemaker, Tim Stevens, knows exactly the right combination of aromas, flavours and characters to release the persona that is Huntington Estate…and that means a lot to him.

Delightfully aromatic, so invitingly fruity and slightly spicy, and it just got better with each swirl of the glass.  It was easy to tell I was going to like this wine.  The palate has lovely, ripe black fruits that link in nicely with a savouriness, a juiciness, a richness and a smoothness resulting in terrific mouth-filling flavours and characters and experiences that linger longingly.  Gee, I like this wine!
