About This Wine
Vibrant plum red.
This wine is everything you want from a Heathcote Shiraz. It's earthy, voluptuous and juicy, just like a rich red forest cake.
With mouth-filling richness, this beautifully powerful wine is supported by fine long tannins and a refreshing acidity leaving you wanting more.
Sweet, sticky and charred bbq beef short ribs.
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 – Cherry and mixed berries, a whiff of spice and dill, vanilla and toast. Medium bodied, confident in its delivery of classic Barossa Shiraz flavour, has a certain lightness with gently juicy fruit mixed in with umami flavour, fine-grained tannin, well-pitched acidity and a satisfying finish.
