The Helen’s Hill wine range celebrates passion, persistence and the genuine connection between people and land. This is a Yarra Valley blend of cabernet sauvignon, merlot, cabernet franc, malbec and petit verdot. It’s an attractive sort. An intense bouquet of dark fruits and violets set the tone for the journey this wine will take you on. Dark fruits of blackberry and raspberry continue on the palate, lingering all the way to the back. The intense dark fruits are supported with silky yet firm tannin to give this wine all the structure required for it to last the test of time.

95 / 100

James Halliday

(2017 vintage) "60/20/10/5/5% cabernet sauvignon/merlot/cabernet franc/petit verdot/malbec. The cool '17 vintage will be long remembered in the Yarra Valley for the extreme elegance of both red and white wines. So it is here, with the array of forest/bramble fruits, fine tannins and French oak woven together in a silken chord."

"Medium-depth crimson in colour, this opens with medium intensity aromas suggesting red and black fruits, along with a hint of undergrowth. It's really appealing in an understated way, and the palate confirms that friendly feeling through middling intensity dark berry flavours of good ripeness and easy texture. Grainy-textured tannins provide firmness and structure."
