A delicious medium-bodied palate with fine lacy tannin and pure dark berry fruits, with savoury undertones. Lovely presence in the front and mid palate, powering off towards the back before seamlessly integrating onto a juicy, bright and silky finish.
The Hilltops wine region is North West of Canberra on the Great Dividing Range, centred around the town of Young in Southern NSW.
Hilltops is rapidly emerging as one of the most exciting viticulture regions in Australia. The high altitude, cool to moderate climate and dry summer and autumn provides excellent ripening conditions. This along with the gravelly, free-draining soils, enables the production of wines with great intensity of ﬂavour and ﬁnesse.
The ﬁrst vines were planted in the 1860s but it’s only recently that the area’s true potential has begun to crystallise. Hilltops is the only NSW region to win the Jimmy Watson Trophy and be a Two Time Winner of the Great Australian Shiraz Challenge. New entrants and second generation growers are combining older vines with modern wine making, creating wines of purity and brightness. Shiraz and Cabernet have already achieved greatness here but the future for Italian and Spanish varieties seems just as bright.
This delightful Shiraz pairs amazing with BBQ meats.
