Gee, by crikey, by Jingos I’ll tell you what! They’ve turned out a pretty fine Graveyard this vintage. A classic middle weight Hunter with appreciably better oak treatment.

The overarching impression it gives you is one of balance. It’s impeccable. Blue fruit, licorice, a little pepper and earth with a gentle charry sauciness. Oak is downplayed this year adding just a kiss of vanilla. Medium weight with fine grained tannin and balanced acidity it fills the mouth with a smooth and effortless charm. The pitch and length all just so – harmony. On a second day’s tasting it developed a little more Hunter leather and coal (although I reckon they have had quite enough of that already). It would be foolish to drink this now – wait at least ten, or even twenty years, for it to show its best. Drink 2019-2035.

96 Points - Gary Walsh, The Wine Front.
