Lock and Key Hilltops Cabernet Sauvignon 2016
Moppity’s Jason Brown writes, ‘We’ve made a lot of changes to our cabernets since 2012, both in viticulture and winemaking, with a view to promoting vibrancy and freshness’. The outstanding 2016 provides stunning proof of Jason’s success. The wine’s deeply coloured, but limpid, with a vibrant crimson rim and absolutely delicious, pure-cabernet palate. It’s amazing to believe a wine of this calibre is Moppity’s second-tier cabernet. This is further proof of Hilltops as the centre of cabernet quality in the NSW high country.
