Community Tasting Notes (9) Avg Score: 93.7 points

  • The intensity of the ‘14 vintage is immediately on show here. The nose on this is a brooding to begin. So much more depth than the ‘11 tried last month. Rich black plums against a spicy backdrop. Great balance and length. Plenty of potential for improvement too. 92+

  • Dense red/purple colour. Firm strong shiraz fruit nose. Rich red fruit, nicely balanced with a pleasing round dry tannin finish. Quite a big wine but with good credentials. Perfect with simple takeaway pizza in the era of COVID-19!

  • Crimson purple colour. Medium aroma, More sweet then dry, plum and dark berries dominate, followed by sweet spice. Blackberry flavours with plum and raspberry. Milk chocolate with light spice. Tannins are extra fine, smooth and delicate. Acid is perfectly balanced. Not quite full bodied but close, long slightly dry finish.
    A very nice wine and worthy of the 14 Hunter vintage. I haven’t tasted this wine from any other vintage so I am not sure how this stands out but it is a great wine. I will have to find some more. Still fresh and young, many years ahead of it.

  • Really shines with air and was at it's best on day 2. It didn't make it to day 3. Showing plum, blackberry, terracotta pot, white pepper and violets. Not much more than medium weight with silky tannin and beautifully balanced acidity. Structure seemed to build over time. Great length. Beautiful now but I have no doubt it will a stunner in 15.
