At Helen’s Hill, we like to think of ourselves as all-rounders. It’s an ethos that serves you well in a family business. That being as it is, our Hilltop Syrah has a real soft spot in our hearts. It’s the all-rounder's style of Shiraz that’s begun to pick up somewhat of a cult following in big red drinking circles. The Yarra Valley provides our Shiraz vines with the ability to produce a style of wine that has an elegance to it that is simply unattainable for classical Australian Shiraz. It broadens our Syrah’s potential for food pairings and drinking occasions immeasurably, and we love it!
Grown on the ‘Hill Top’, the highest point of Helen’s Hill, the vines are exposed to the hottest temperatures on our property, allowing them to thrive. The result, as owner Allan describes it, is an iron fist in a velvet glove. A cool climate Syrah with all the elegance and power required to make a lasting impression.
