Richard Hamilton Hut Block Cabernet Suavignon 2002

86 points

McLaren Vale, South Australia.

Made by ex-Rouge Homme winemaker Paul Gordon this is quite dark and tannic, with a good deal of acid too. There is nice ripe simple blackcurrent fruit to blance. The total package is commercial but a cut above.

James Halliday gave it 94 points which is either a hefty bonus for good value (this is about $15) or just an over-the-top rating for a wine that shows nice winemaking, and good quality but straightforward fruit.

Good wine, good example of the great quality of the cool 2002 vintage in South Australia.
