2016 Shiraz is top drop for Huon Hooke

The 2016 Penna Lane Shiraz is one of Huon Hooke’s Top Australian Reds for the month of December.

See https://www.therealreview.com/ (and scroll to the list near the bottom of the page).

From the Real Review tasting notes:

Medium to deep red colour with a tint of purple and a peppermint, menthol aroma (eucalyptus-linked) together with blackberry. It’s fresh, clean and appealing. The palate is medium to full-bodied and taut, firm and quite elegantly put-together. Raspberry and mint flavours, intense and quite long. The fruit is doing the talking. Taut, lively, focused and has good ageing potential.

The Penna Lane Shiraz grapes are from one of the Clare Valley’s most elevated vineyards. This elevation produces a wine that is bright, varietal and complex.
