  • 96/100
    Huon Hooke

    Huon Hooke

    Deep, bright red-purple colour with vibrancy and youth; deep, rich and complex aromas of black fruits, spicy oak well integrated and traces of broken rock—very inviting. A fuller-bodied style of pinot, showing concentrated fruit and fine, supple tannins in excellent balance. Long carry. A top-notch pinot which is backward/slow-developing, and promises to have a long and rewarding future. A ripping wine of gorgeous flavour, the best I've seen from this vineyard. 02 JUL 2023
