THE STYLE

The purpose of this wine stylistically is to bring together the synergies of Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon from two superior viticultural regions in Australia.  We are combining the mid-palate richness of  Hunter Valley Shiraz ( 75% ) with the structure and fine tannins of Hilltops Cabernet Sauvignon ( 25% ),  carefully balancing both fruit and seasoned oak.
