Honeytree Shiraz 2021
- Hunter Valley -
A very well balanced medium- to full-bodied classic Hunter Valley Shiraz. Red fruits on the nose with a dark chocolate sweetness in the background. A seamless palate with plum and dried spice flavours. There are tight structural tannins leading to a long soft round finish. A wine to enjoy now or cellar.
Vineyard Holman Estate, Pokolbin
Winemaker Mark Richardson
Medium cherry red in colour with obvious spicy black fruit on the nose. The palate is medium/high in acidity, laced with spicy black fruit and firm tannins. There is a distinct earthiness to this wine. The spiciness ad fruit lingers on the palate, leading to a long but youthful finish. This is an elegant Hunter red reminiscent of Burgundian structure and style. You will be rewarded with 6-8 years of cellaring.
Dr Ron Georgiou MW – Wine Oracle – 94/100
Mid ruby in colour. Lots to like here with well composed blackberry and black cherry fruits with touches of leather and spice. Good initial impact before settling into a more supple fleshy mouthfeel, touches of tobacco and chocolate with grainy tannis and fruit pastilles to finish. Nice wine to enjoy over the early to medium term.
