VINTAGE:

McWilliam’s Single Vineyard Hilltops Cabernet Sauvignon

With a philosophy to source top quality fruit from a single, meticulously managed vineyard, McWilliam’s Single Vineyard delivers distinctly elegant & balanced wines. The 2016 vintage of the McWilliam’s Single Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon came from Block 19 & 20 of the vineyard tendered by our very own Chris Coddington. Chris believes that the gentle inland slopes of the Hilltops region is the best place in Australia to grow world class Cabernet.

“The Single Vineyard range is an exciting development for McWilliam’s winemaking. Being site specific they showcase individual quality and personality, delivering wines of nuance and detail. This enables our viticulture and winemaking teams to push the quality and learn more about the terroir of each vineyard.” Andrew Higgins – McWilliam’s Premium Winemaker.

Quintessential Cabernet aromas of blackcurrant, tobacco leaf and cacao with violet floral notes giving lift and perfume, supported by judicious use of classy French oak.

Classically structured, full bodied Cabernet. Taut, dense palate expands and unfurls with fine, chalky tannin supporting cassis, redcurrant and dark chocolate. The finish is exceptionally long and well defined, ensuring a long life in the cellar.
