Huon Hooke

Huon Hooke

Medium to deep red/purple colour, with a patina of toasty smoked-oyster complexity. Liberal oak, some of it possibly American. There's a coconut note. There are roasted meat aged nuances, and the wine is complex and smooth in its tannins, starting to benefit from some developed mellowness. The acidity is a touch strident. A very good drink now and for many years to come.

90 Points Robert Parker

Deep garnet colored, the 2009 Alexander Munro Shiraz has maturing blackberry preserves and dried plum notes over nuances of Chinese five spice, incense, licorice and smoked bacon. Light to medium-bodied, the palate reveals a tart acid backbone cutting through the concentrated flavors and medium to firm, chewy tannins before finishing long. Drink it now to 2019+.

96 Points James Halliday

Alexander the Great is heir to the throne of Hunter shiraz, with no fear of the grave(yard). A wine of beautifully fine, chalky tannins, immaculately honed texture, refreshingly low alcohol and vibrant acid profile, it lingers with blueberries, olives, sarsaparilla, nutmeg, pitch and graphite. Long live the king! Drink 2019 - 2029.

First released in 2011, when I gave it a massive rap in these pages. Three years later, Alexander the Great has returned at the same price, a rerelease to bring the release age up to five years. It''s upheld great fruit integrity of black cherries and dark plums, layered with spice and a subtle backdrop of dark chocolate oak. This is an unashamedly medium-bodied style of lively acid focus, beautifully textured structure, poise and grace. Drink 2019 - 2029.
