Huon Hooke

Huon Hooke

Deep red colour with a tint of purple. The bouquet opens with a dominant oak note, and the wine is full-bodied and tight, firm and slightly austere, perhaps a little unready, and the oak is all too apparent. The tannins are slightly gritty. Long finish. Fruit-wise it seems rather closed and begs for more time.

Has a similar ProCork issue to the Cabernet Sauvignon. The grapes were hand-picked and received a long post-fermentation maceration on skins, extracting every bit of flavour and tannins from those skins. The wine spent 19 months in new, top quality, barriques from top cooperages. The final judgement on this wine can't be made until it is at least 10 years old (ProCork permitting), when the issue of the oak balance can be resolved. Right now, it seems too much of a good thing; hopefully, time will prove otherwise. Drink to 2030.
