Hell Hole is a reference to pokol (Hungarian for hell or purgatory) and legend has it that early migrant settlers used the term “hell hole” in the midst of a scorching hot Pokolbin summer.
That said, this is a hell of a good red, with purple-tinted crimson hues, 14 per cent alcohol and gamy scents.
Plush loganberry flavour shows on the front palate, rhubarb, licquorice, dark chocolate and cedary oak marry on the middle palate and minty tannins play on the finish.
5 stars. John Lewis – Newcastle Herald – 9th January 2016.
