About This Wine
Quite complex on the nose, this wine deliveries opulent fresh lifted sweet ripe wild strawberries and cherries with some savoury toasty notes and some undergrowth truffle. On the palate it is velvety, fruity, and lively with an acidic linearity that lingers and indicates that it will develop with further aging. Quite tight at the moment, it will boastfully open to be a powerful wine with balanced acidity at the finish as well as good velvety fine tannins. As a result, it will be a wine that will continue to build in structure and flavour whilst simultaneously harmonising. The wine will continue to develop and will take on more truffle and earthy complexity as it ages.

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.
