03SPECIAL – 2016 Hilltops Cabernet Sauvignon
- Varietal Cabernet Sauvignon
- Vintage 2016
- Region Hunter Valley
The Hilltops region is a warm growing region that Cabernet Sauvignon is particularly well suited to, tending to produce dark robust wines with distinct berry fruit signatures and firm tannin structures. We employ controlled modern wine making techniques allowing us to control tannin extraction and emphasize fruit aromas and flavours. Maturation for 12 to15 months in mostly one to two year French oak barriques add oak tannin’s to the wine and help soften the fruit tannin’s. Deep red in colour with a very dark center. Abound with blackcurrant fruit. The palate is smooth and fine grained, while noble tannin’s provide a long, balanced and integrated finish. Don’t be afraid to keep this wine in the cellar for 5+ years and be rewarded with earthy cigar box aged Cabernet characters that are well worth the wait. $10 P&H or Free P&H with every dozen purchased.
