Huon Hooke's Ratings and Reviews
Huon sometimes reviews a wine more than once. A rating and review reflects a snapshot of a wine at that point in time. Other tasting sessions might produce a different result.
Wine prices on HuonHooke.com are only indicative and in most cases reflect what the winery stated as their recommended retail price when the wine was submitted for tasting. We do not verify, check or update pricing data at retailers or restaurants.
We calculate a weighted average that includes the winery's top 5 wines of the past 5 years.
It's simply the average of wines with the same blend, rating, country and vintage. For example, we calculate an average price of all 92pt Australian Shiraz from 2008.
Please complete the new wine tasting submission form at The Real Review.
When wine samples are received, they are sorted into tasting groups based on variety or blend. Once a tasting group reaches around 100 wines, a tasting session is held, spread over multiple sittings.
Each session's notes and ratings are consolidated, uploaded monthly and typically are available to members in the middle of the month. As a guideline, Huon tastes between 300-700 wines per month.
