Tertini Hilltops Cabernet Sauvignon 2016


The fruit for this wine was grown by the Mullany family in the Hilltops region of New South Wales.

This vineyard has warmer days to ripen our Cabernet Sauvignon and cool nights to ensure our fruit is grown with the richness, aromatic development and balance that this region is renowned for.
