Here’s a ‘classic’ Vat 9, and a ‘classic’ Hunter red. In fact, it would be hard to get more ‘classic’. Has a lovely violet and vanilla perfume, a dusting of pepper and spice, dried herb, boysenberry and raspberry, a lick of fine powdery tannin, bright pippy raspberry acidity, subtle earthiness, and a pretty red fruited finish of clean length and precision. So charming. Sometimes you don’t have to try too hard to impress. Tasted: Jul 17; Alcohol: 13%; Price: $85; Closure: Screwcap; Drink: 2019-2036+; Rated: 95 Points; Gary Walsh; The Wine Front
A gleaming chassis of redcurrant, satsuma plum, Chinese herb and the Hunter's signature whiff of creamy leather, are driven by cylinders of high quality French oak (2700l casks, 15 months), gentle acidity and firm tannins of a ferrous sheen, nestled as a whisper behind the fruit, but increasingly apparent as the wine expands in the glass. This tasted even better the second day, auguring for a long, bright future ahead. A mid-weighted wine of pointed precision and savour. Drink to: 2043; Price: $85.00; Date Tasted: Jan 2018; Alcohol: 13%; Rating: 97 Points; James Halliday Wine Companion
