James Halliday – Matured in used French oak only, which has allowed the fruit flavours to shine through. Smart wine making. It offers an assortment of berried fruit flavours with iodine, clove, mint, lavender and ferrous-like aspects resting on top. It's fresh, attractive and an enjoyable wine to drink. - Campbell Mattinson

About This Wine

Wine Making Notes

Grape harvest occurred in late February when the fruit was ripe and flavours were fully developed. In the winery the grapes were destemmed and wild fermented in open-top stainless steel vessels with gentle pumpovers and plunging. The wine was pressed to tank before being racked to neutral French oak barriques and stainless steel tank to mature. The inaugural Henrietta Tempranillo was bottled in December 2022 under a stelvin closure.

Tasting Notes

This Tempranillo rings true to the Henrietta style; bright, fresh and thoroughly drinkable. The nose is vibrant, with fresh red berries and red current intertwined with a touch of exotic spice and rosemary. The palate is well balanced showing wild red berries, cherry and spice tied together with soft tannins for a long bright finish.

Heathcote Wines

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.
