Cabernet from the Hilltops tends to fall into the more medium-bodied category with savoury herbal notes. This one meets all those expectations with fruit along the spectrum of plum, black currant and cassis, backed up by graphite undertones, bay leaf, thyme, eucalypt and a fine line of dusty tannins. Easy, yet layered drinking from a producer that’s been doing it well in the Hilltops for decades.

The Hilltops (no relation to The Hilltop Hoods...) is quickly emerging as one of the most exciting and new viticultural regions in Australia. Located in Southern NSW and nestled on the South West Slopes of the Great Dividing Range - this discrete region is home to a small number of boutique wineries with vines dating back to the early 1860s, and more recently, the 1970s. Known for its continental climate, i.e. very hot summers and terribly cold winters has given rise to distinctive, award-winning regional wines that never fail to charm.
