Cabernet Sauvignon 2017 – Black Market Deal #39259
- Medium bodied
Ahhh, Hilltops. Feels like a setting from a Hobbit movie or the moon of Endor (Ewoks anyone?). Alas it’s simply a wine region in NSW, but one that’s churning out some really special cab sav. Because of its higher altitudes, the wines tend to be a bit more medium in body, leaning towards structure and nuance rather than power and punch. This one gives you classic blackberry and plum, but the finish is chocolate and cedar wrapped in fine-grained tannin. Just magical.

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.
