The 1999 Hill of Gold Cabernet Sauvignon has a lovely depth of dark purpley red, with a tight pink rim. The aroma is packed with blackcurrant and dark chocolate, underpinned by fine cedary oak. Intensely vibrant berry fruit flavours highlight the distinctive regional varietal characters whilst the classic firm tannin structure frames a deep complex finish.
As a uniquely positioned viticultural district, nestled deep in the Western Slopes of the Great Dividing Range, Mudgee has a great deal to offer the world of wine. The Hill of Gold vineyard and property have for nearly 30 years had an integral place within the history of Mudgee. Rosemount and the Oatley family have undertaken to re-establish this long standing local wine name, adding several hundred acres of new plantings to the original site. The outstanding combination of soils and climate that define the Mudgee wine region provide ideal viticultural foundations from which to produce distinctive varietal wines reflecting the unique terroir of their origin.
