Hill of Content Cabernet Sauvignon 2005
Cabernet Sauvignon from South Australia, Australia
This is a lush and dense 100% Cabernet that just oozes delicious aromas and flavors. Beautiful red and black fruits fill the palate, and hints of chocolate and coffee add to the feast of flavors. 100% McLaren Vale fruit has made this wine intense and wonderfully appealing. Enjoy with cheese, your favorite cut of meat, or just sip it on the Hill of Content.
Hill of Content Winery
Hill of Content was born out of my desire to create interesting Region specific wines at a price that allows for “liberal” consumption. The name translates as “Hill of Happiness”, referring to a state of mind rather than geographic place. I hoped it would also be my own little way of seeking revenge against those “anonymous” glass pour wines that I am sure you to have tried and been disappointed by......you know wines that are red or white, contain alcohol, but you would hardly strike up a conversation about. You be the judge if I have succeeded.
John Larchet, Proprietor. View all Hill of Content WinesLike the United States, which is about the same size, Australia's winemaking regions are huddled into one or two pockets of the country. The state of South Australia, which produces about 60% of the country's wine, also has the most wineries and sub-regions, including McLaren Vale, Clare Valley, Coonawarra and Barossa Valley. New South Wales is home to the Hunter Valley, while the smaller, southern state of Victoria is best known for theYarra Valley. Head way west to the very large state of Western Australia and you'll find the tiny region of Margaret River at the southern tip.

Alcohol By Volume GuideMost wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.
