About This Wine
Our winery is situated in the building where the pioneer, Tom Craven established the regions mail service in 1850's. We craft this wine to be a quintessential Heathcote Shiraz, with 2% Viognier to give a richness and add softness. The old red Cambrian soils and climate make the region distinct in the Australian landscape. Made from a blend of grapes from our two vineyards, we use both French and American oak to make this wine truly definitive of the region we love. A rich Shiraz with a backbone of white pepper holding the brooding dark fruit together that flows seamlessly into a beautiful, lingering mocha 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.
