About This Wine

92 POINTS - The Real Review Aaron Brasher
"Youthful in the glass. Pretty aromas of pot-pourri, cherry, cola, anise, bramble and spice. Sweet, firm and fleshy on the palate. There's a radiant core of red and blue fruits along with musk, fragrant spice and a leafy, earthy edge. The tannins deliver lovely texture, savouriness and length and the acidity brings the zip. Smart drinking."

Deliciously savoury, fruity and smoky, this is top shelf Australian Sangiovese. It’s bone dry with intense floral aromas introducing a palate that’s full of sweet cherries, pomegranate and bold, chewy tannins. It’s a red wine made for food and would partner especially well with veal cutlets and garlic mash. Sangiovese is also a thin-skinned variety like Nebbiolo. It is known for its earthy more than fruity notes, it has attractive mid red colour and can be characterised by high levels of tannin well balanced by acid. It is suited to well drained soils with abundant sunlight both of which the Heathcote vineyard provides.

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.
