2019 Hilltops Shiraz

This Shiraz is made from grapes selected from five vineyards in the Hilltops district around Young on the South Western Slopes of New South Wales.

2019 was a warm, low yielding year producing some of the darkest colour and blackest fruit character we have seen from the district.

Rich dark fruit through the aroma, concentrated flavours and waves of ripe tannin rolling in from the deep.

Great now if you love wine of power and intensity. Destined for a long life in the cellar for those who are patient.

pH 3.64

…a significantly excellent release of this shiraz, shimmers in the glass with purple-dark red colour, slips over the palate with a satiny spread of mellifluous fruit and spice, offers fine sheets of lacy tannin and finishes fresh and nicely puckering.

Such a delight!

Such pretty sweet fruit, floral notes and piquant spice. Such a delight! Such pleasing and easy drinking but feels like pedigree too. A worthy addition to a cellar (and for  your glass now, now, now).

This is a fresh, young wine of some charm. It’s deep purplish in colour and offers floral scents, blackberry, mocha and savoury, lightly clovey spice on the nose.

In the mouth, it’s vibrant and juicy in flavour,  medium in body, and sandy tannins give it just enough definition for fine balance.
