Angas's great grandchild Ron Angas acquired cuttings from the Edelstone site and migrated the precious plantings to his pastures at Hutton Vale.

There are but two winemakers who can lay claim to a staggering four Jimmy Watson Trophy victories. Wolf Blass was the man behind the label. John Glaetzer was the man behind Wolf Blass. While working for Wolf, Glaetzer was moonlighting on his own brand, applying the same extravagance of technique to the pick of Langhorne Creek fruit. Perfection in the form of black bramble fruit, muscular yet affable tannins, all framed by the luxury of ebony oak.

Fruit is harvested in small batches, as each parcel is separately managed and handled allowing greater control over the final wine. Parcels are settled for a period of cold maceration, maximising colour and flavour extraction. Batches are fermented while being treated to a course of regular plunging and pumpovers as tannin levels are closely monitored. Once the desired level of tannin extraction has been achieved, components are separately pressed off skins and prepared for malolactic. Up to sixteen months maturation in a selection of French oak barrels are followed by assembling into the finished Hannan Hills, a profound expression of the Frankland River Cabernet Merlot.
Dark rich plum colur, youthful violet hues. Lifted notes of cassis, plum and raspberries complemented by sweet oak. Intense berry fruits are accompanied by dark chocolate, supported by powdery tannin and seasoned by hints of cigar box oak. Rich, ripe fruit characters contribute great depth of flavour and linger on the finish.
