Huntington Estate [Mudgee NSW], Cabernet Shiraz 2017

Owners / winemakers Tim and Nicky Stevens have produced yet another fine examplar of this cool climate blend, reflective of its terroir.
It opens with an enticing sweetness on the nose reminiscent of cherries, plums and perhaps a waft of fennel.
The firm acid and tannin backbone gives the brooding fruit component length and resonance
The vibrancy of the Shiraz portion supports and allows the power of the Cabernet fruit to evolve on breathing.
Whilst ticking all the appropriate boxes for a well balanced youthful wine of that blend, this vintage will definitely reward cellaring
