Huntington Estate [Mudgee NSW], Bin 18 Shiraz 2015

Huntington Estate, a legendary brand in the Mudgee area cotinues to impress with the release of the current Bin reds.
Only harvested when all the growing conditions are advantageous, the Bin reds are made from single vineyard picks and from selected barrels
This 2015 Huntington Estate Bin 18 Shiraz, already benefiting from 4 years of maturation, pours with a dark mulberry colour and a limpid meniscus.
Red berries, black pepper, mixed spices and a hint of smokiness push forth the power of the varietal characters. The 14% Alc gives it a smooth muscularity.
It is balanced and enjoyable now with definite further cellaring potential
A gentle waft of cloves on the nose made it a good match to tonight's meal of slow-cooked brisket .
