High praise comes in far and wide for this Heathcote Shiraz. It’s typical of the region showing black cherry and fennel aromas alongside a palate that’s broad and savoury with hints of blood plum, liquorice and roasted beetroot. It’s juicy, well balanced and full of fine tannins.

As with previous vintages, the grapes come from two main vineyards, one off the deep red Cambrian soil, the other from tougher more gravelly ground. The first gives us rich, chocolatey and earthy flavours whilst the other has more highly fragrant notes with good acid and sweet fruit. The wine that results is our take on Heathcote shiraz.

The grapes for this wine came from a combination of vineyards. They were all kept separately during their fermentation and maturation lives. The machine harvested volume was crushed and destemmed into static fermenters and pumped over three times a day. After approximately ten days of fermentation, during which time the temperature and acid levels were monitored, they were individually pressed to tank using an air bag press.

Finally the wine was racked off gross lees and put into barrel to finish malolactic fermentation and mature in a combination of new French (19%) and older barriques.

Black cherry in appearance, and aromas of liqourice cherry liqueur and freshly tilled earth with hints of sponge cake on the nose.

Sweet fruit characters of ripe plums with black forest cake flavours and dark chocolate on the palate. Silky fine tannin, well balanced with a long finish. Winery Notes

Reviews & Accolades

"Easy shiraz to like. Well flavoured, a bit of spunk, fresh fruit and just generally more-ish. Black cherries, plums, peppercorns and vanilla. A slip of creaminess but really it’s the fruit holding the floor. One glass and you’re definitely up for a second. Lick of anise doesn’t hurt either. Good stuff."
