Helen’s Hill Cabernets is a fantastic wine full of punch and still has refinement.
Deep, dense red-purple; a blend of cabernet sauvignon, merlot, cabernet franc, malbec and petit verdot; an unusually full-bodied Bordeaux blend by Yarra Valley standards,yet the depths of the black fruits are not heavy, and the tannins are precisely structured and balanced. This is a certain 40+-year cellar proposition.
The Helen’s Hill wine range holds the spirit of those who have gone before us. It celebrates passion, persistence and the genuine connection between people and land. Each wine is hand crafted and under goes an arduous selection process before it makes it into a Helen’s Hill bottle. As we know, great wine is made in the vineyard and as such only small select parcels of fruit from certain rows of our single vineyard site are hand picked at harvest. Each wine is fermented in select French oak barrels under the watchful eye of winemaker Scott McCarthy. Prior to bottling each barrel is tasted and ranked with only the best barrels selected for the Helen’s Hill range of wines.
