Hedges Family Estate Red (2020)
Regular price £34.00
Unit price per
If you like a good claret, you'll love this wonderful fresh Bordeaux-style blend from the renowned and award-winning Hedges Family Estate in Washington State, USA. This organic and biodynamic fine wine is a real treat, rated outstanding with 90 points by Decanter, and a core listing in a number of Michelin starred restaurants across the United States. Uncork it now, or keep it for up to 10 years. Share this one with family and friends over a meal, and you'll be the most popular person at the table. Worth every penny, and a steal at this price (it retails at $50+ in the USA). Limited stock - when it's gone it's gone!
Reddish black bramble fruits, red currants, bright cinnamon, clove, vanilla and a touch of chili pepper, cocoa, toasted seeds, and a touch of earthy graphite. Nice structure, good length and lovely flavors of fruit, spice, and earth. This wine has a classic Hedges style with a modern touch, very enjoyable now and will age for years to come.
Cabernet, Merlot and Syrah are all known for producing full-bodied, tannic styles of wine, so it is no surprise that a blend of these should have a similar style. Will work with a full flavoured cheese-based dish, as well as red meats which are high in fatty proteins - the tannins in this wine will bind with the proteins of the meat and clear your palate making your mouth ready for the next bite.
