Reviews and Ratings
|Greg Hughes rated this wine as 93/100 with the following review:|
This interesting wine comes from a New South Wales producer who seems to strongly advocate for Sangiovese in Australia. This wine makes a strong case. The wine distinctly reminds you of Sangiovese's rusticity, but also keeps it fresh.
It's showing some age already, a decade in. The colour is a deep garnet, with ruby edges. It is bricking, but very gradually.
The aromas have an unmistakeable whap of strawberries. There's some balsamic, cherry, and cooked plum too.
It has an exceptionall silky and satisfying mouthfeel. More strawberry jam, prunes, plums, black tea, and liquorice.
It's lighter than a port-style. It's denser than an icewine. It kind-of does it's own thing.
Unfortunately if you end up enjoying this wine, you will have to stock up. Hamilton's Bluff appears to have gone gently into that good night. James Andrews' twitter page for his winery declares that he's been freed from the shackles of the wine industry and is now looking forward to a new career involving mining.
