Savoury and fleshy

Huntington Estate Special Reserve Shiraz 2013, Mudgee, AUD $36-$39

This is remarkably soft and fleshy for a Mudgee red, the colour a deep, glowing red-purple and the bouquet both spicy and vegetal in a complex Rhone-like fashion. Developed savoury flavours; a charming and delicious red wine. (Screwcap)
