Named for Paul’s eldest daughter, Cuvee Agustina represents the pinnacle expression of the Katherine Lindsay Estate with the finest barrels selected for their texture, concentration and structure. This bright, saturated crimson wine is fragrant with boysenberry, anise, and earthy notes of wet forest floor. Black raspberry and Damson plum add depth along the mid-palate leading to flavours of savoury thyme and an iron-like minerality. 2018 was a great vintage, a cool autumn allowed prolonged ripening that introduced a bright acidity and firm tannins to the wine's elegant texture and holds all the way through to the long finish.
JAMES SUCKLING Rating: 97
This is linear and refined with beautiful finesse and depth of fruit. So compact and exciting. Subtle strawberries and lemons with hints of cedar and almonds. Extremely long and beautiful on the finish. Drink or hold.
THE WINE ADVOCATE Rating: 97
The 2018 Pinot Noir Cuvée Agustina Katherine Lindsay Estate is a selection of three blocks, normally composed of Calera and Swan clone fruit, but Paul Hobbs says, "This year, we included a bit of 115 clone instead of just using the heritage clones." The Augustina is an incredibly stunning wine, with a fabulous perfume of violets, lilac and dried herbs accenting a deep core of cherry pie plus notes of cured meats and Earl Grey tea. In the mouth, it offers explosive, concentrated, layered flavors in a satiny frame with lively freshness and a very, very long finish. This will benefit from another three to five years, or more, in bottle. Drink: 2021 - 2035. - Erin Brooks, 23rd Jul 2020
