Produced from 127 year old vines. Dusty cedar oak driven nose with graphite, dried fruit and black cherries. Firm full bodied wine which is well structured. Lashings of deep black cherries and briary fruits. Licorice and cola adds to the complexity. The fruit driven wine ends with a slightly tannic, long finish.
Richard Hamilton Centurion Shiraz 2019, McLaren Vale, SA
Outstanding (Score range 95-100)
Often an internationally recognised, leading brand or winery – but not always! Produces a classic wine that is a faultless representation of the style/variety. Complexity on the nose and a seamless palate are an example of the hallmarks of an outstanding wine.
Highly Recommended (Score range 92-94)
A quality focused wine that has plenty of style. Length of palate and intensity are often key characteristics of highly recommended wines. These producers could be the ones to watch in the future.
Recommended (Score range 89-91)
An above average well-made, reflection of the style/variety, which often represents good value for money.
