2021 Merlot, Hilltops 

‘The familiar aromas of plums, black cherry and graphite are immediate in this Hilltops merlot, which, like a familiar childhood friend, is welcome no matter how long it's been between drinks. Cinnamon quill, star anise and black gravel come through with a plushness of acid and skinsy tannin grip. This is a wine for drinking with great chatter and plenty of smiles.’ 95 pointsShanteh Wale

2021 Fiano, Hilltops 

‘Whole-bunch pressed, fermentation on full solids in French and Hungarian puncheons (10% new); 10 months on lees. Pushed to the limit of extraction here with golden baked pears, Manuka honey and apple strudel. Hay bales, candle wax and enoki mushrooms. There is a web of delicately strung connecting parts woven into a distinct wine that speaks of texture and nutty nuances. A modern style in today’s Australian fiano realms. Bold.’ 95 pointsShanteh Wale

Furthermore, Cupitt's Estate shines with a remarkable collection of 11 Silver medals for an array of wines that consistently scored between 90 to 94 points.
