expert reviews about
2013 Mystery Iconic Hunter Valley Shiraz Cabernet
The Wine Front (2013 Vintage) says
3-4% Cabernet from cuttings off Lakes Folly vines...could be described as the ‘Big Boy’ of the ... Hunter reds. Blueberries, blackberries, clove and aniseed spice, vanilla. Medium to full bodied, ripe and sweetly oaked (in comparison), grainy firm tannin, lots of mouth perfume and a cool finish. Very good. A satisfying wine.2016 - 2028+
Cracka Tasting Panel (2013 Vintage) says
Wines of this calibre are seldom discounted and to be able to offer it as a pre-release at this price, direct from the winery, is an absolute privilege.
Rich, dense, intense, bright, fresh, long and vibrant were just some of the words used by the Tasting Panel when checking this wine out for the first time. This wine is all class, the purity of fruit is outstanding, the balance and complexity is second to none and even though it is still very youthful, it is approachable now but you know, some time in the cellar will only add greater intensity to this already phenomenal wine.
A must have for any serious red wine drinker!Now - 2045
