Young vine and declassified Graveyard fruit has given this wine some serious class although in that typically mid-weight pinot noir-like Hunter style. It starts with delightful dark cherry, cranberry and slightly jubey fruits with toasty oak and fresh earth complexity sitting underneath. In the mouth its pinot noir-like qualities come up trumps with silky and understated fruit which with light tannins provide a long and ethereal finish. Subtlety is the key here and you could miss it but this is a delicious example of Hunter Shiraz if in an early drinking style.
