Levantine Hill 'The Coldstream Guard' Yarra Valley Rubeus 2016

Special Price $45.00 Regular Price $50.00
A medium bodied, smooth, savoury and complex blend of Cab, Shiraz, Pinot and Merlot, with the Cab and Pinot the most obvious. Red fruits and perfume on the nose lead to a juicy, multi layered, savoury palate. Lovely.

Levantine Hill is rated 5 red stars by James Halliday. Even more impressively, Huon Hooke rates them the 30th best winery in the country, ahead of Penfolds (31), Yangarra, Woodlands, Shaw and Smith, Torbreck, Giaconda, Moss Wood, John Duval and a slew of other ladlers of luminary libations. Levantine have superb vineyards and growers and a brilliant winemaker in Paul Bridgemen who was formerly the winemaker for Yarra Yering. Levantine’s lofty ambitions are well encapsulated by the following quote “We hope this estate will transcend man’s inevitable mortality and brief custodianship of all things material.” Fortunately, the proof is in the bottle as confirmed by Jeremy Oliver who says “Levantine Hill produces wines of European elegance and subtlety and its quality aspirations are frankly inspiring.”
