The richness is held in check by a restrained grapefruit acidity and a savoury finish.

Over five generations the Hill-Smith family have been pioneers in locating exceptional vineyard sites that maximise the personality of their wines. A favourite playground has been the Eden Valley in the rugged and undulating high country of the Barossa. The distinctive label, featuring an original painting of the vineyard by Wyndham Hill-Smith O.B.E., combines the tradition at the heart of the Hill-Smith family with the contemporary styling befitting a modern Australian classic.
