Description

Simon Hackett Hills View Shiraz is a red wine made by McLaren Vale legend Simon Hackett.

Simon Hackett was born and raised in the Barossa Valley where his family have been connected with the wine trade for many generations. – four generations of the Hackett family followed agricultural pursuits in South Australia. Simon worked at Saltram’s, in the Barossa, before moving to McLaren Vale in 1973 where he cut his teeth working at Southern Vales Cooperative Winery (now Tatachilla) eventually becoming senior wine maker. Simon’s privately owned winery is situated at the entrance to McLaren Vale in Budgen road and it is here where he hand crafts his wines in small open top fermenters and gentle nurtures them in a combination of French and Oak barriques. Much of his fruit is sourced from dry grown vineyards with ancient, gnarled vines. Yields are very small and his entire annual production rarely exceeds 10,000 cases. Today Hackett sources grapes from the McLaren Vale, Barossa Valley and Adelaide Hills regions of South Australia.

Simon Hackett Hills View Shiraz is 100% Shiraz , a portion of the wine was barrel fermented in 2nd year American oak hogsheads. Once fermented dry, the total wine was matured in 2nd year American hogsheads for 10 months.

Tasting Notes

Simon Hackett Shiraz is a red colour with a ruby edge. Exciting peppery spices leap out of the glass followed by luscious, sweet berry fruit. Careful use of oak imparts lingering vanilla and toasty notes. Soft, approachable tannins are balanced by sweet fruit and toasty oak flavours. Plum and cherry flavours and the long, soft dusty tannins combine to make a warm, rich yet balanced elegant wine.

Food Pairing

Serve with rich red meats, game, casseroles and stews. Also good with mature hard cheeses.
