2017 Cuvée Aux Antipodes

2017 Cuvée Aux Antipodes

by Huon Hooke

98/100

Deep red colour with a strong purple tint. The bouquet is fresh and vibrant and loaded with dark fruit aromas, cherry uppermost, spices and dried herb touches. Oak is apparent early but recedes into balance with exposure to the air. The palate opens with powerful flavour and marked acidity. A concentrated, powerful and beautifully poised wine with energy and vitality, intensity and complexity, great pinosity and drive, with ample tannins backing the flavour but not tough or aggressive as Bendigo tannins can be. The aftertaste is very persistent and harmonious.
This is a great wine. I would place it alongside any Burgundy grand cru.
Very, very impressive! (295 cases made.) 25 JAN 2019
Drink: 2019–2034
