""They’ve turned out a pretty fine Graveyard this vintage. A classic middle weight Hunter with appreciably better oak treatment.


The overarching impression it gives you is one of balance. It’s impeccable. Blue fruit, licorice, a little pepper and earth with a gentle charry sauciness. Oak is downplayed this year adding just a kiss of vanilla. Medium weight with fine grained tannin and balanced acidity it fills the mouth with a smooth and effortless charm. The pitch and length all just so – harmony. On a second day’s tasting it developed a little more Hunter leather and coal (although I reckon they have had quite enough of that already). It would be foolish to drink this now – wait at least ten, or even twenty years, for it to show its best."

"A brilliant Hunter shiraz of authenticity and style. Medium in weight, it’s a supple, elegant expression of the old Australian ‘burgundy’ with a wild, briary bouquet of deep small berry/plum fruit lifted by a pungent musky, meaty perfume, with undertones of polished leather, dark chocolate and cedar. Dripping with intense, spicy and briary fruit, it’s supported by a silky-fine extract of pliant tannins, finishing quite savoury, with exemplary length, freshness and acidity"
