From none other than the birthplace of Hunter wine, located on the Hunter River, this is a very well pitched example from Dalwood Estate showing both hearty dark fruit flavours while retaining that savoury Hunter personality. It delivers fleshy blackberry and mulberry aromas lifted by iron fillings and graphite complexity with subtle oak sitting just behind. It’s then got that power and plush dark fruits on the palate seen in the 2019 vintage supported by fine tannins and then finishes with a spicy twist. It’s a crowd pleasing Hunter Valley style that will drink well for some time to come.
