Sourced mainly from Heathcote our Shiraz parcels come from both deep Cambrian soil as well as gravellier sandy loam. The richer fuller characters of the wines from the Cambrian soil are tempered by the lifted aromatics and firmer acid structure of the shiraz from the tougher gravellier soils. Together they complement each other to produce this classic Central Victorian shiraz blend, replete with savoury characters and rich chocolate combined with caramalised vegetables and beautiful fine tannins.

Jeni Port, James Halliday's Wine Companion

Heathcote shiraz putting on a mighty fine show here. Translucent deep purple in the glass with the scent of freshly squeezed black cherries, bramble, raspberry and violet. Runs long and smooth across the palate, quite plummy and lifted with a hint of musky, woody spices. Fresh, fruit forward and bright, it will satisfy drinking this year but also prove its cellaring potential.
