David Hook Reserve Barbera 2011 “..best Australian expression.”

David Hook Reserve Barbera 2011 has received a glowing review by Chris Shanahan, Australian wine judge and writer, November 2012 … “Italy’s barbera grape tends to make brilliantly coloured reds with bright summer berry flavours, brisk acidity and soft tanins.  David Hook’s version ticks all those boxes.  But there’s another dimension, too, making this easily the best Australian expression of the style that I’ve tasted.  The fleshy but not plump palate, and smooth, silky tannins make this a more complete, satisfying red without abandoning the varietal character.”
