About This Wine

Good deep red, garnet edge, brilliant clarity. Plummy fruit and nutmeg spice leap from the glass. Cassis, a touch of aniseed and a hint of gravel. Black fruits, Satsuma plums and a hint of cocoa follow onto a palate. The tannins are rich and velvety, adding structure and length to a beautifully weighted, bright palate. This is a fine example of cool grown, carefully handled Victorian Shiraz, and will age with distinction for many years.

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.
