Hugh Hamilton The Nutter Petit Verdot

Cracka Review

Colour: The Nutter is a deeply coloured crimson red wine.

Drink: Now to 2019.

Bouquet: The aroma is lifted and reminds us of red berries with violets.

Palate: Those berries step forward on the palate but there's also spicy, cinnamon and black pepper elements with the new oak imparting some cigar box hints. There's nothing simple about 'The Nutter' and you see fascinating insights into this wine right through the bottle.

Food Match: Let it accompany hearty fare such as red meats and game.

Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2005 Vintage) says
Firm, earthy, foresty black fruits, with a near-citrus tang; the tannins are present, but not overwhelming, although some may think the price is.

WINESTATE (2005 Vintage) says
Very interesting spicy, ripe, blackberry/quince-like fragrances. Soft, persistent flavours. A well-made wine for drinking now.
