Huntington Estate Special Reserve Shiraz 2011


This shiraz is very deeply coloured for the challenging 2011 vintage.  Its aromatics are oak laden, with primary expressions of coconut and coffee.  The palate also is coloured by its time in oak, with some iodine, dark cherry and chewy plum characters rounding things out.  Acceptable

Abv: 13.8%, Price: $36, Source: sample, Vendors and website: http://huntingtonestate.com.au, Tasted: 2015
