95 Points - Huon Hooke

Bright, deep purple colour with a fresh, fragrant, floral aroma which echoes stalky whole-bunch fermentation. The wine is sweetly juicy on the fore-palate before slightly chewy tannins chime in and cleanse the finish, leaving a clean, dry aftertaste. A statuesque wine which definitely needs more time: it's a bit chewy and grippy right now, so serve with protein-rich foods. High potential.
Hand picked and fermented as a combination of whole berries and whole bunches in open fermenters, with gentle plunging and minimal working.
Vintage Notes
2019 was a remarkable vintage. Above average winter rainfall ensured a good start to the growing season and warm weather in late-December / early-January was moderated by useful rain on the 13th of January. The season concluded with mild, steady conditions and delivered fruit of wonderful quality to the winery.
Cellaring Potential
Has the concentration and structure to develop fine tertiary characters in bottle over the next 15 years.
