David Hook Shiraz 2019
6 PACK BUY – Absolute bargain Hunter Valley shiraz
David Hook cut his teeth at legendary Hunter Valley wineries such as Tyrells and Lake’s Folly and after several years as ‘flying’ winemaker in Bordeaux, Spain and the US, he returned home in the ’80s to plant his Pothana Vineyard in Belford, Hunter Valley. The Belford Dome as it is known, is a geological formation of red clay soils overlaying limestone – excellent for reds and interspersed with sandy loams on the creek flats beautifully suited to whites. Natural organic approach in the vineyard (no chemical fertilisers)..
From the winemaker: “This Shiraz is a medium bodied wine showing red berries, spicy fruit and soft mild tannins. This wines has the ability to age more that it’s constitution might suggest. This wine is deep red in colour with purple tinges. The aroma is dominated by sweet berry and spice. The medium bodied palate showing fruit richness with peppery undertones. The finish is long soft supported by fine tannins.”
We love this super fine medium bodied shiraz with gorgeous focus and balance. Red berries, spicy fruit and velvety tannins. The finish is long, framed by lovely ripe tannins. An absolute bargain for this quality. 13% alc
