FIVE STARS 18.5/20 | Raymond Chan
FIVE STARS | Bob Campbell MW 

The Hillside is a blend of 58% Malbec, 26% Merlot and 16% Cabernet Franc from the famed ‘The Terraces’ vineyard overlooking the Esk Valley winery at Bay View. It is produced from fruit that didn't make the final grading for The Terraces (rrp $150) and though declassified in that sense it is unquestionably another powerhouse expression of Hawkes Bay wine from winemaker Gordon Russell.  

This inaugural release of ‘The Hillside’ comes from the excellent 2010 vintage. It has been given five years cellaring at the winery prior to release and while already harmonious it has significant cellar potential going forward.

Description
Raymond Chan writes "FIVE STARS This is a deeply concentrated, powerful and robust, near rustic, black-fruited Malbec blend with complex secondary and funky flavours of earth, herbs and leather, on a fully structured, lively palate. Match with slow cooked game meats over the next 8-10 years."
