Hillcrest Vineyard Premium Yarra Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2010 Vintage) says
Strong colour; has the depth (and, to a degree, width) that is the hallmark of Hillcrest cabernet. Intense blackcurrant fruit, a suggestion of black olive, are just the starting point, the ultimate strength — and future — of the wine lying with its outstanding tannin structure.

James Halliday (2008 Vintage) says
Dense purple-crimson; a full-bodied wine, with tremendous depth to the blackcurrant fruit and exceptional savoury yet fine and ripe tannins; oak also plays a role of some importance.

James Halliday (2006 Vintage) says
Lovely pure varietal cabernet, with cassis, cigar box and toasty oak; good concentration, but in an elegant style; patient cellaring needed.

James Halliday (2005 Vintage) says
Much stronger colour than the Estate, and likewise far more structure and concentration; a Peter and Paul exercise perhaps; regardless, this is pure cabernet in an austere garb with persistent tannins. For the long haul.
