The fruit for this wine was grown by the Mullany family in the Hilltops region of New South Wales. The vineyard is situated on a rolling hillside near Young at an altitude of 500m and has rich red volcanic soils. This vineyard has warmer days to ripen our Cabernet Sauvignon and cool nights to ensure our fruit is grown with the richness, aromatic development and balance that this region is renowned for.

94 Points “Good colour; an attractive medium-bodied Cabernet with juicy cassis fruit to spare, and balanced tannins that are fully resolved; the touch of new French Oak seals the deal”. - James Halliday

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

Notes From The Winemaker: A drier than normal winter in 2015 meant budburst happened 2 weeks earlier than usual. Normally this puts us at slight risk to frost but some spring rainfall helped the frost stay away and ensured healthy growth in the vines. While it was a dry growing season, maximum temperatures were still moderate and the harvest dates for all varieties ended up falling back to the their expected times, not earlier as experienced in other grape-growing regions. The Hilltops region is blessed with mostly drier and warmer days with some cooling relief at night due to its continental position. The Cabernet Sauvignon was harvested on 12th March at 13.2 baume from a 20yo single vineyard, this wine was open-fermented with cultured yeast, 14 days on skins and matured in French Oak (10% new) for 9 months.
Fruit Source: 100 % Hilltops from Mullany family vineyard.
Peak Drinking: 2016 -2026
Wine Analysis: Alcohol = 13.6%, pH = 3.66, TA = 6.2g/L, Residual Sugar = 0.0g/L
