About This Wine
Buckshot Vineyard is a small family-owned producer of two red wines. Their Heathcote Shiraz is from a distinct 4-acre patch of soil within the famous 500 million year old Cambrian earth of Heathcote, located in Central Victoria.
“Buckshot” is a colonial expression describing combined quartz and ironstone pebbles that riddle the soil.
Through an uncompromising commitment to quality, the winemakers aim to create a wine of finesse, showing rich, intense varietal flavour with a trademark long, silky finish.
The Heathcote wine region in central Victoria is well known for its excellent red wines, most notably Shiraz. Heathcote reds are defined by their inky depth of colour, and deep, dark complex fruit flavours. This is combined with well balanced tannins and acid that help to give the wines great cellaring potential.
All this is made possible by the terroir. The Heathcote region sits at between 160m and 380m elevation with a temperate climate of even rainfall. The soils are rich in calcium red soils made up of “greenstone”. These soils are prized for their water retention capabilities allowing them to drain freely but still hold enough water throughout the growing season. The grapes that result are small and concentred which in turn make rich concentrated wines.
