Dense ripe plum and dried plum notes with an overly healthy dose of oak. Medium to full bodied palate. Not your normal Hunter Valley Shiraz - more like a South Australian Shiraz as I’ve mentioned in a previous note. Still retains the Hunter Valley earthiness but not as medium bodied sweaty saddle that Hunter Valley Shiraz should be and was traditionally. Great that Hunter Valley producers have returned to the old medium bodied savoury styles which shone in 2014 and 2017.
