"Just a splash of cabernet. The rest 80/20 let’s say. Young Liam Anderson at the helm of winemaking these days. Some subtle shifts in the freight train of wine styles has resulted. This feels like an incredible bargain – a compelling wine, in a fuller style, for the bucks. It bests so many concocted, big reds under $30.

Lavish bouquet of dark berries, chocolate, jelly babies, blackcurrant pastilles. Pastilles to taste, light spice, satiny feel, fine taninns and a ripple of Jaffa choc-orange to finish. Really well balanced, gulpable fuller, fleshy red wine. Delightful." Drink 2019-2030. 93 Points

"Originally a single vineyard wine made from Shiraz and Malbec, Yellow Hammer Hill was created to supply restaurants with a wine that had all the hallmarks of Wild Duck Creek Estate. Since then, Yellow Hammer Hill has grown to be a blend of up to 10 different vineyards in the Heathcote region, and comprising predominately Shiraz, with varying volumes of Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon. It is a wine that is supremely complimentary to most food styles."
