About This Wine
White flowers, fresh white stone fruits and flinty notes on the nose. Almond bitterness and savoury lees contact characters balance more stonefruit on the focused but generous, textured palate completed by a lingering, refreshing 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.
The Wine Front – Straw-coloured. Taut, brooding style. Stonefruits and spice with a subtle cedary-creaminess. Honeysuckle. It gets your juices flowing as you put your thinking cap on. There’s a bit of mineral to this, but the fruit prevails. The dude abides. Perfectly pitched in all ways.
