$21.86 - Hilltops NSW - Hungerford Hill Hilltops Cabernet is an extremely impressive modern style Cabernet that displays all the classic Cabernet characters of blueberry and blackcurrant along with a wonderful lifted palate texture that leaves you with sense of wanting more. The length of flavour is something to behold.
Xanadu Cabernet Sauvignon has a generous and beautifully structured palate, layered with dense fruits of the forest, ripe tannins and a persistent fruit finish.
Medium-bodied with seductive flavours of blueberries, cherries and dark plums. The French oak maturation provides subtle savoury, spice characters with a pleasing soft and silky texture to the mid palate. A long, persistent finish makes this a great wine for Spanish or games dishes.
