The best Hunter Shiraz lovingly crafted by the award winning team at Hart & Hunter it is sure to delight its vibrant and dark red in colour, with the nose opening up to aniseed, violets, a hint of moccha and rich red fruits.
Formed in 2009, Hart & Hunter is the creation of Damien Stevens and Jodie Belleville, gatekeepers of some "great patches of dirt." The pair source outstanding parcels of fruit from unique Hunter sites to create bright, primary, elegant wines that, in true Hunter tradition, focus on Semillon, Chardonnay and Shiraz. A small batch project – the Black Series – is in the mix too, with innovative takes on Fiano, Chenin Blanc and ‘75 Days Chardonnay.’
Mid to deep red colour with a purple tinge. The aromas are savoury, smoky-oaky, spicy and faintly floral, while the palate is elegantly medium-bodied and nicely balanced to enjoy now. Intense red fruits in the centre-palate. Soft, fine tannins; subtle and easygoing, with extra length. The fruit does the talking. A very stylish shiraz.
