Huntington Estate [Mudgee NSW], Bin 24 Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Established for 50 years, Huntington Estate has been and continues to be an iconic brand in the Mudgee region.
Produced from single vineyard block and specially selected barrels, the current Bin red  releases tick the boxes of heft and substance typical of the region.
This Bin 24 Cabernet Sauvignon, already with 4 years of maturity, opens with a punch of black currants and menthol both on the nose and palate followed by a blast of puckering acid and tannin
A touch of funk, reminescent of the "sweaty saddle" characters, adds to the astringency.
Whilst the generous fruit component will continue to benefit from cellaring. the lurking presence of the yeasty funk might attenuate the fruit power
This is definitely a food wine to match rustic proteins.
We had ours with a home-made cheddar & Swiss brown mushroom croque-monsieur
