"The rare, ideal location of Heathcote Estate, planted on the deep red Cambrian soil, imparts amazing depth and character to our shiraz.
A beautifully balanced wine packed with flavour and complexity, embodying the affinity between the Heathcote region and the shiraz grape. Will age for at least 10 years under ideal cellaring conditions." - Heathcote Estate
A total of 5 individual blocks and their sub-sections were hand picked and handled separately in the winery (a total of 17 batches of wine) with fermentation in a mix of open and closed fermenters with some whole bunches included, mlf, maturation in French oak puncheons and 6250L cuves. A wine that needs room to move, so break out the decanter. Heathcote shiraz on a higher, finer plane to the usual, boasting tension and refinement. Gorgeous deep purple hue with lifted florals of violet and bramble, spiced-up plums and black cherries. A most complex youngster, still yet to do the full reveal, but with high potential. Long, fine-grained tannins are crying out for time in the cellar.
