Hobbs Tin Lids Shiraz Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

96 Points – Joe Czerwinski (RobertParker.com) “This wine was made together with Sean, Bridget and Jessica Hobbs, their ‘kids’, or Tin Lids as they were often called. Their youthful influence on this traditional Aussie blend has resulted in a vibrant wine with the fresh herbal flavours of Cabernet merging seamlessly with the rich dark red and blackberry flavours of Shiraz.

On the nose, you’ll find liquorice and blackberry essence, spicy notes of pepper and sage with a hint of freshly picked mint, meaty and savoury aromas and subtle notes of cedar. The palate is full-bodied with dark red and blackberry flavours and the lovely herbaceous characteristics of Cabernet Sauvignon The wine has a fresh acidity, very fine grain tannins and a long perfumed finish.”

About Hobbs

At Hobbs we lavish care and craft on the grapes that we grow to make exceptional wines. Yet as much as considered winemaking counts towards the quality of our final products, soil and climate play a vital part in defining the character of each vintage even before the grapes are picked.

The Barossa Ranges provide unique conditions for grape growing. The Hobbs vineyard is situated at the top of the ranges, overlooking Flaxman’s Valley.

The coarse, yellow, podzolic soil here lies atop clay subsoil, mixed with decomposing rock. It may not sound very exciting, but it has a great advantage for us – this strata stores water well, meaning our vines can be effectively dry grown.

A combination of wet, chilly winters and warm summers conspire with the unique local soils to produce grapes of rich character. Growing season temperatures in the Hobbs vineyard are comparatively low. The influence of these lower temperatures is significant, creating a longer ripening phase that results in very distinctive varietal flavour characteristics.

The Barossa Ranges are rugged and beautiful. Like most of nature’s gifts, their beauty is more than skin deep, the secrets of soil and seasons bringing so much to the wines we make. Some of our vines have thrived for a century in this idyllic hillside setting, their grapes only becoming richer and more distinctive as the decades roll by. To taste any Hobbs wine is to savour the very essence of where we live.
