Expert Reviews

One of the big advantages of sourcing grapes from right across south-eastern Australia for large-volume labels such as Hanwood is the ability the winemakers have to minimize the effects of extreme vintage conditions such as the hot, dry spell leading up to the 2009 harvest. This cabernet has impressively varietal blackcurrant fruit, some good grippy tannins and a slick of subtle oak. The couple of extra years in bottle also help round out the flavours.

Winemaking Note

The wine was vinified in a mixture of static, rotary and open top fermenters for up to eight days on skins. A quarter of the final blend underwent extended maceration on skins for a period of three weeks which aided in softening tannins, filling out the palate and creating a supple but rich mouthfeel. After pressing the wine was matured in stainless steel with American and French oak for up to nine months prior to the final blending and preparation for bottling.

Winery Profile

Set in the midst of the unique Australian landscape is the McWilliam's Hanwood Estate Winery. Established in 1917, the winery stands today as a pillar of winemaking excellence dedicated to creating the very best wines.

In March 2008, following two years of significant investment and expansion, the new McWilliam's Hanwood Estate Winery was opened.

The multi-million dollar development project saw the creation of a new small winemaking facility, created to handle small, premium parcels, with state-of-the-art equipment as well as new laboratory and winemaking areas, and a brand new office. The expansion allows greater flexibility and opportunities for wine style development and innovation in the region and an ongoing commitment to the Riverina area since its winemaking potential was first discovered by John James McWilliam in 1913, when he established the first winery in the region - McWilliam’s Hanwood Estate.
