Winemaker Notes

Hilltops Shiraz is bright youthful purples and dark red in color. This wine displays exciting and full of exotic chocolate-mint, black cherry characters, with some white pepper overlaid with subtle oak character. Very sweet fruit with fine grained persistent tannins, which is a hallmark of this vineyard; excellent fleshy middle palate and a long supple and satisfying finish.

Critical Acclaim

WS 88
Wine Spectator
Firm and chewy, with gravelly tannins around a core of raw currant and dark plum fruit, finishing on a mineral note. Best after 2013.

Evans Wine Company, Australia
Evans Wine Company Winery Entrance Winery Image

Named for its founder Len Evans who emigrated to Australia in 1953 and has been a tireless owner, innovator, and promoter of Australian wines. Evans has had his hand in many Australian wineries including Rothbury Estate and Petaluma. Evans Wine Company was founded in 1980 and specializes in wines from the Hunter Valley for the Evans Family Wines label.

Hilltops is in the South-Western Slopes of the Great Dividing Range, situated around the rural towns of Young and Harden in Southern New South Wales. It is about four hours drive south of Sydney and about one and a half hours from Canberra the national capital. An historically important part of Australia, it has an established reputation as a producer of high quality stone fruit. The vineyards are mostly to the South East of Young, which is known as "The Cherry Capital of Australia" and there are about 1,000 acres under vine in the area. The region sits on a large granite rock, which over millions of years has weathered to produce deep topsoil, red coloured as it has mixed with ironstone sand blown in from the Red Centre of Australia.

Scattered among the yellow hills, orchards and olive groves of the Hilltops region are some of Australia’s most friendly, down-to-earth wineries. While it’s a bit warmer than its northeastern neighbor, Orange, the cool summer nights and dry fall season in Hilltops allow relatively late harvest dates and thus the production of a wide range of wines. Hilltops produces powerful reds from Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz as well as charming Chardonnays and food-friendly Semillons.

Marked by an unmistakable deep purple hue and savory aromatics, Syrah makes an intense, powerful and often age-worthy red. Native to the Northern Rhône, Syrah achieves its maximum potential in the steep village of Hermitage and plays an important component in the Red Blends of Southern Rhône, adding color and structure to Grenache and Mourvèdre. Syrah is the most widely planted grape of Australia and is important in California and Washington. Sommelier Secret—Such a synergy these three create together, the Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre trio often takes on the shorthand term, “GSM.”
