The Pinnacle Series is the premium collection of wines within the Ross Hill Wines range. These single estate wines best display the excellent sub-regional terroir of Ross Hill’s estate vineyards and the most outstanding parcels of wine from each vintage. All Pinnacle fruit is hand-picked, handcrafted and matured in some of the world’s best French oak.
The wines within the series are elegantly broad ranging – from the ‘Blanc de Blanc’ sparkling, with fragrant notes of lemon and brioche, the aromatic cool-climate white wine varieties of Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Gris and the French style Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. The beautifully balanced cool-climate reds such as Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc will have red wine lovers coming back for more.
The award-winning ‘Griffin’ leads the pack, having achieved a 97 point score for its debut 2012 vintage from Australia’s most recognised wine reviewer, James Halliday, in his Halliday Wine Companion. The Griffin is a traditional Bordeaux blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (41%), Merlot (51%) and Cabernet Franc (8%).
