Noble Red Heathcote BST Shiraz 2015 Special Release
No one quite understands the struggles, the hard work and the time that goes into making a wine unless they experience it for themselves. Hence the name – Blood, Sweat and Tears.
The wine displays rich, dark fruit aromas with peppery tones. A dense and well structured wine with elegant, lingering tannins. This wine is unfiltered and can be cellared for up to 10 years.
SOLD OUT - Noble Red's 2016 vintage BST Shiraz from Heathcote is now available here.
The vineyard has adopted a dry-grown philosophy with the use of minimal chemicals - producing fruit that is low yield and concentrated. The wines are big Heathcote wines, typical of the region. We have achieved 5 star winery by James Halliday two years in a row.
Noble Red BST has been made using 20% whole bunches and aged for 12 months in French oak (20% new). Winery Notes
Reviews & Accolades
"BST = Blood, sweat and tears. Heathcote shiraz.
Alcohol dims the lights on the freshness of the fruit but there’s still plenty of goodness to tuck into here. Blackberry, tar, chocolate and raspberry flavours combine well before alcohol thins the finish fractionally. Tannin talks a big game but the fruit doesn’t quite go with it."
