“A pure expression of the unique Whalebone Vineyard terroir” 93 points | Huon Hooke – 2017 Whalebone Vineyard Cabernet Shiraz

Author: Huon Hooke
Source: The Real Review
Review Date: Mar 2021

Medium to deep red colour with a trace of purple and a mossy, undergrowth bouquet with traces of humus and cabernet raspberry-mint, more savoury than fruity. The wine is very dry and savoury in the mouth, finishing with firm tannins and a palate-cleansing trace of bitterness. It perhaps lacks a little in freshness but has undoubted depth of flavour, concentration and is already quite complex.
