Originally just a Shiraz / Malbec blend, we added Cabernet Sauvignon to this wine to give greater textural diversity. The grapes are sourced from the same vineyards every year, fully and gently de-stemmed, hand plunged and basket pressed. The wine is then matured for up to 23 months in older French and American oak barriques, hogsheads, and large format vats, as well as some concrete vats for added complexity. Yellow Hammer Hill is a wonderful all round red wine to be enjoyed with almost any occasion.

(82% Shiraz, 12% Malbec and 6% Cabernet Sauvignon) – Purple colour. Bolder and fuller than the 2015, and giving plush primary red and black fruits. Think raspberries, blackberries and red apple. The palate is silky and supple with a delicious berry and redskin flavour, rolling into chewy tannins and milk chocolate hints with a long palate coating finish. An absolute cracker! Cellar up to 10 years. 14.8% Alc.
