Hutton Vale Farm Shiraz 2016 (Eden Valley, South Australia) "...black fruits, baking spices, flawless..."
"The names of the Angas family and of the Hutton Vale Farm have been parts of the fabric of the Eden Valley, with continued ownership during six generations, the seventh (brother and sister Stuart and Caitlin) now also actively involved. This is a beautiful wine, its aroma, its palate, its weight, its varietal and regional expression giving rise to a continuous stream of velvety pleasure. Flawless." - 97 points, James Halliday, Wine Companion 2021
"A big guy ready to give you an embrace. Give it time and veneers of pleasure slowly unfurl. Swirl the glass and it's a pleasant awakening with aniseed and fennel kicking things off. Generous black and blue fruits adorn a mouth filling wine. There's some oomph here but the smooth delivery seduces. Touches of Christmas cake and cola add interest with baking spices and undergrowth drawing you closer. Still a little tense, longevity is in its veins. Over a few days of tasting is exhibited its best self offering a forest berry pie tease on a long and persistent finish. Big love here." - 94 points, Q Wine
