The Hillside is sister wine to the famed 'The Terraces'. A wonderful expression of the Heipipi vineyard produced in minute quantities without compromise.

This is dark-fruited and complex wine. Flavours tend towards red fruits, plum, dark cherry and spice. Earthy tobacco and cedar notes add further complexity. The wine is soft and mouth-filling with well-ripened tannins and although approachable as a young wine, it should continue to develop complexity for many years to come.

A wine which after time in the cellar can deliver and is outstanding in its own right. If pairing with food rich red meat and game is a wonderful companion.
Vineyards and Winemaking
The vineyard planted in Malbec, Merlot and Cabernet Franc was re-established in 1989 after sitting idle for 30 years. Densely planted, dry-farmed without irrigation and intensively managed, it was harvested on a single day and co-fermented as a field blend to capture the true essence of the vineyard.
