Huon Hook Wine Reviews

Huon Hook Wine Reviews

Huon Hook, one of Australia’s leading wine reviewers, writes for publications such as Decanter, Gourmet Traveller Wine, and the Syndey Morning Herald.

He’s a tough critic, so we were wrapped to have recently received the below two reviews.

MV Shiraz 2016 – 91 Points
Deep, rich red-purple colour with a rich, oaky, savory, traditional style bouquet – high ripeness and fairly high alcohol, plus plenty of oak. Full-body, good concentration and amplitude: a big generous shiraz style.

AAA Shiraz Grenache 2016 – 90 Points
Attractive bouquet of subtle spice aromas, clean and fresh and balanced, the palate likewise easily accessible and balanced for early drinking. The wine is
medium to full-bodied and rounded with soft tannins and immediately enjoyable savoury complexities.

  • This is a pink box - it contains our new look Graciano. It’s being featured at Ruby Red Flamingo, they are the first ones to get their hands on it. P.S the courier didn’t leave it there, it was our winemaker Richard making a personal delivery and trying to be creative 🤦🏻‍♂️

  • We love throwing a good party at Landcross Farm. This was Spring Affair 2017. It's back on in 2018. But first, winter is coming ❄️🌧☂️

  • What a pleasure it was for us to host members of The Killers for a winemakers dinner and winery tour this week on their hard earned, night off. They surely rocked Adelaide, what a show...and what a tour! #thekillers #wonderfulwonderful #adelaide #mclarenvale #paxtonwines
  • Over the coming months, we'll be rolling out our new packaging, which includes this awesome capsule designed by @parallaxdesign Why the bee?
.
Vines do not need bees, but they need plants for a healthier environment; that’s where the bees come into it. Bees are the primary pollinators of plants, which then aid in the natural replenishment of important soil nutrients.
.
The flowers that need bees then attract more bugs, and hence the healthy ecosystems begin. Keeping this biodiversity in balance eliminates the need for chemicals.

  • Healthy Soils > Healthy Vines > Exceptional Wines
.
For us, we're always in the dirt. Through the use of natural preparations and composts we bring the soil and vine into balance. The result? Exceptionally pure and expressive fruit; exceptional wines

  • 31 degrees in Adelaide today. Can’t believe it’s heading towards May. So we’re reaching for one of these. This is our Guesser White, a blend of Sauvignon Blanc and friends. Extremely popular at cellar door, and available in our online store
