About This Wine
This 2018 Heathcote Estate Shiraz is another top line example of from this highly regarded producer. Beautifully structured with layers of red and black fruit flavours and lovely floral notes, this displays the typical concentration and balance the region is famous for. A wine with an enormous following, the 2018 vintage release is likely to build on the considerable reputation of Heathcote Estate.
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.
