About This Wine

The 10 hectares of the single vineyard, mature (60 year old), dry-grown Shiraz was hand picked in separate parcels, reflecting the different soil types. Each parcel imparts its own character into the final blend.

The wines were fermented in one and two tonne open fermenters using different treatments including some inclusion of whole bunches on a couple of parcels. The wines all spent between 3 to 4 weeks on skins before being batched based on specific soil type in the vineyard. They were then matured in French oak Hogsheads (25 % new) for about 16 months prior to blending and bottling.

The nose is vibrant with blue fruits and Dutch liquorice, then complexing characters of dark pepper, graphite, cedar and exotic spices. The palate is initially quite juicy and flavoursome with silky tannins. Then it becomes more savoury textured as a core of dark fruits and chocolate underpinned by cedary oak and tannin carries through to the 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.
