Regions evolve as do winemakers, and the Hogan family begin to evolve and shape the future of Xabregas by concentrating on the regions strengths, Shiraz and Riesling. Terry would argue that we need only to concentrate on Shiraz, as it is very clear what wines he favours;

‘I am sure Shiraz is the wine that they serve in heaven, if not then I’m going to need to find alternative lodgings for eternity’
~Terry Hogan

Youngest Son and dominant force in the development of the brand is Paul Hogan, who is ‘mad passionate’ about Riesling, “there is serious discussion between my father and brothers as to what constitutes our best wines, but I know that Riesling has true nobility.”
