Leogate Estate The Basin Reserve Shiraz 2014
“Deep, intensely bright hue; the bouquet is complex and multilayered, with classic Hunter characters: plum, earth, spice and layers of dark and red fruits. The palate flows magnificently with a precise and intense line of fruit and tannin that goes on and on.” 97 points, James Halliday.
In 2016 the wine was served on Qantas First Class International Flights, which is a bit of a big deal as it involves a very rigourous tasting of 1,200 wines carried out by a tasting panel of 11 highly regarded sommeliers.
