89pointsHope Estate 2017 Basalt Block Shiraz (Hunter Valley)

Best Buy

From the Hunter Valley in New South Wales, this wine shows a lot of regional character. It's a little soapy but is dominated by heady fruit aromas like plums, blueberries and cherries. Rounding them out are white pepper and dried herbs and flowers. The palate bursts with juicy, plump fruit and savory powdery tannins that grip gently. A long herb-flecked finish makes another sip an easy endeavor. Christina Pickard
