Gold Medal, Perth Royal Wine Show 2020. Gold Medal, China Wine & Spirits Awards 2020. The Hillside wines are made from low-yielding fruit grown on the steepest slopes on the estate allowing both excellent sunlight exposure and ventilation. The wines are both ripe yet delicate and limited production maintains the high level of quality that has yielded numerous accolades across the range.

It's ripe and polished with smoked cedar wood slipped hand in glove into pure, ripe cassis, chocolate and peppermint. It's pretty much impossible to review, or drink, this wine without uttering the...
94 points, Royal Melbourne Wine Show. 94 points, James Halliday. Dark crimson with purple hues. Aromas of blackberries, florals, dark chocolate and bay leaf. The palate is plush and medium bodied with blackcurrant, savoury and spicy flavors. Fine and long tannin structure. #TOP12
Wine Advocate 95 points. Gary Walsh for the Wine Front, 95 points. Wine Advocate Prettier and more aromatic than the very good 2015, the 2016 Cuthbert Cabernet Sauvignon hints at violets and mint on the nose and adds hints of cherries to the cassis fruit. Medium to full-bodied, it's supple, almost silky on the palate, with a finish that's simultaneously mouthwatering and firmly tannic. It should drink well for at least a decade. JC Sep 2018. You’d not find many people called Cuthbert these days, much like Gary, in a way. Blackcurrant/blackberry, liquorice, dark mint chocolate, pepper and bread dough. Medium to full-bodied, deep fruit,...
WINERY NOTES: Our Killerman’s Run Cabernet Sauvignon has been crafted through careful fruit selection, traditional winemaking techniques, sixteen months maturation in new and seasoned French oak hogsheads and bottling unfiltered to fully enhance the wines character and appeal. Appearance Brick red in colour with deep crimson hues. Nose The aromas of blackcurrant, cassis, tobacco leaf and subtle French oak char combine sweetly on the nose. Palate Richly flavoured and textured, the classic cassis and leaf notes carry through confidently from the nose onto the palate, beautifully supported by fine grained natural tannins, smoky oak influences...
James Halliday 95 points. Pristine blackcurrant and bay leaf flavours come whispered with toasty, cedar wood oak. Truth is though that it tastes of Coonawarra and of cabernet sauvignon and of not much else, in the best of ways. Essence of the variety and of the region. It draws confidently through the palate and is satisfying and then some through the finish. Drink by 2036. 95 points Campbell Mattinson - James Halliday's Australian Wine Companion Universally regarded as one of Coonawarra's greatest wines, it continues to win trophies and medals throughout Australia and the world. Dark red in colour, with a very complex nose with hints of...
"The 2017 vintage was one of the milder vintages in WA. The latest Moss Wood captures this vintage perfectly and is without doubt one of the more restrained and tightly framed Moss Woods of recent years. Not the opulence of 2014 or the firm power of the 2016. Yet it retains the elegance, perfume and soft approachability that is Moss Wood. And hidden within is a wine that I suspect will still be drinking beautifully in 30 years." Make sure you decant it even now before drinking. Published 25th April, 2020 Ray Jordan 97/100 "Very attractive aromas of blue fruit, as well as red cherries and redcurrants with cedary, savory nuances, stones,...
James Halliday 95 points. "The tannins at this stable, evidenced by the top tier reds, are illustrious. This is no exception. fine-grained and woven across a seam of sage, bouquet garni and gravel. Texture, so fine. Currant, plum, pencil shavings and graphite, too, yet it is the structure uber alles that draws me in and keeps me coming back for another glass. A tapestry of complexity." Ned Goodwin Published 01 August 2019 COLOUR Deep Crimson with a purple hue. NOSE Displaying a perfumed nose of dark berries and savoury characters. PALATE The palate is full of juicy berries and earthy notes that are supported by well integrated fine tannins....
94 points - Wine Companion 2019 Edition, James Halliday, 01 Aug 2018 "Harvested in two batches on 29 Feb and 5 Mar, fermented separately for 8 and 27 days respectively, matured in French oak (15% new) for 18 months. Interesting wine. The length of fermentation and the gap between pickings have produced a medium-bodied, savoury wine with just a hint of minty/wintergreen, outweighed by the freshness and cassis flavours of the long palate - all in all, cool climate references." WINERY NOTE: The fruit for the Hedonist Cabernet is grown biodynamically on our own vineyard situated in the Willunga foothills, McLaren Vale. Warm Summer days are...
WINERY COMMENTS: Sexy Beast, a succulent and luscious McLaren Vale Cabernet Sauvignon “I was always taught that Cabernet Sauvignon was a classical, structured and well mannered wine, but in our wonderful McLaren Vale Mediterranean climate we make it rich, brooding and powerful, underpinned by boundless energy. We call it our Sexy Beast, inspired by the 2000 cult classic movie starring Sir Ben Kingsley” – MT Colour: Deep purple in colour with a strong hue Aroma: Bouquet explodes with black currant, smoked hickory, glazed currents, aniseed, tar with a touch or cloves and cut mint. Palate: The palate starts out with drive and a thick sway...
~ Buy Six and Pay $45 net Each ~ James Halliday 95 points and Special Value Star. Dark red. Aromas of blueberry and liquorice. Intense dark fruit flavours of blueberry and currants on the palate with liquorice and dark chocolate. Firm tannins on a long finish. Char grilled rib eye with root vegetables and seasonal greens. The 2015 Vintage had dryer than average winter conditions resulting in a less vigorous spring and subsequent reduced yields across all varieties, this was followed with mild days and cool nights which resulted in a near perfect slow ripening pattern for both red and white grape varieties with fantastic natural acid...
