Hugh Hamilton Oddball The Great Icon Saperavi 750ml 2016

$150

Awards: 95 Points Halliday Wine Companion 2020

“Toned by the highest quality fruit among the estate’s holdings, this showcases all virtues of this ancient variety, especially when put to work in a warm climate. A flow of purple flowers, boysenberry and cola. Emphatic across the palate with a broad stroke of gritty tannin. Simple, I suppose, in its visceral delivery. But, so delicious!”

Region: McLaren Vale, South Australia

Units Per Case: 6

Molasses, cherry wood, baked raspberries, tar, rosebuds and spice. Tremendous poise between fruit weight and tannin; fruit-rich and yet somehow savoury at the same time. Loads of tart cherries and cherry wood. Tobacco pouch and earthiness.

Winemakers Note:

We wondered what would happen if we took only the best barrels of Saperavi. Pull the cork to find out.’
