Buy of the Week AU

Huntington Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2012, Mudgee, AUD $26

This is one of those great Australian wines that asserts quality and personality at a price that defies belief. The wine looks incredibly youthful despite its five years of age. The fruit is plush and delicious, the mid-palate is fleshy, and the acidity and tannins are integrated. There is also an intriguing, appealing rusticity to this wine. It is a single vineyard wine of character and place, which delivers a solid and satisfying red wine experience. (Screwcap)
