Richard Hamilton 'Hut Block' Cabernet Sauvignon

TOP McLAREN VALE CABERNET! - 2021 Halliday Cabernet Challenge. 96 Points

The 2019 Hut Block is an elegant Cabernet Sauvignon from our McLaren Vale Estate Vineyards. Rich, ripe cassis fruit showing hints of mint with oak derived mocha and vanillin highlights on the nose. Full of vibrancy, this wine has round, succulent varietal fruit with long tannins that give persistence and length


Named after the picker’s hut at the front of the property, our Hut Block vineyards are planted on sand and black clay loam soils over a substructure of clay. We think that the intensity of our Cabernet Sauvignon can be attributed to these soils, while the mild maritime climate of McLaren Vale, in which cool evening and night breezes from the gully winds moderate the day time temperatures, suits this variety.
