97 points James Halliday, 98 points Campbell Mattison Wine Front.

With a philosophy to source top quality fruit from a single, meticulously managed vineyard, McWilliam’s Single Vineyard delivers distinctly elegant & balanced wines. The 2014 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.

Distinctly varietal nose of vibrant blackberry and dark chocolate fruits, supported by judicious use of classy French oak. The Palate is classically structured , full bodied Cabernet, with silky cassis and dark chocolate fruit finishing with fine dry chamois tannins of tremendous length.

Cabernet Sauvignon from the “best block” on the Barwang vineyard, in the Hilltops region. It’s when you taste a wine like you realise what an undervalued resource the Barwang vineyard is. It’s a superb cabernet. Brimful of fruit, smooth of texture, complex-enough, ripped with tannin, persistent. You can ask for little more from a young red. It tastes of blackcurrant, bay leaves, graphite and sweet woodsmoke. It has a trademark cabernet dustiness. It builds impressive volume but then wraps chains of tannin around its all. Creamy vanilla and gum leaf characters both make appearances, if fleeting. This is a wine of overt quality.
