Hutton Vale vineyard, based in the north eastern hills of the Eden Valley, is one of the true hidden gems of the broader Barossa Valley/Ranges area. In fact, without wanting to get too carried away, we think this place has the potential to become one of the region’s iconic single-vineyard sites. It certainly has the pedigree to do so. After all we are taking about a vineyard that was planted in the 1960s with Shiraz cuttings from the famed Mt Edelstone, a site that is only 1km to the north (as is Hill of Grace). In fact there is another interesting connection between Hutton Vale and Henschke – Mt Edelstone was actually planted by Colin Angus, forbear of the current Hutton Vale owners John and Jan Angus. Colin Argus sold the already planted Mt Edelstone vineyard to Cyril Henschke in favour of setting up the Hutton Vale station and vineyards.
There’s plenty of dark red and black fruits, whole black pepper spice and herbs on the nose. The palate is brimming with brooding dark red fruits and salty-savoury liquorice notes that characterise Shiraz from this area. The finish is seamless, fine and long. Shiraz from Hutton Vale Farm has proven cellaring pedigree and I expect these wines to evolve over the next 25 years.
