An iconic and prophetic brand since they first planted in 1975. Is this the best site in the whole of the Heathcote area? Organic and biodynamic principals are used to make wines that express the terroir. What more can you say about such an amazing brand?
The definitive Heathcote Shiraz. Ripe, powerful and expressive. Plums, chocolate, spice and lots more. The is a lot of concentration on the palate with acid and tannin to balance it. This wine ages incredibly well. Will pair well with roast beef.
Heathcote – The glamour region of Victoria for lovers of big reds. And the core production is Shiraz and Cabernet with ‘guts’. But it is a region that offers a lot of diversity when you scratch the surface. The cooler southern parts border Macedon and make lovely aromatic wines. There is a lot of experimentation and adoption of more drought resistant Italian varieties to great effect too.
Shiraz/Syrah – A bit of a chameleon, Shiraz can change how it looks depending on terroir and/or wine maker influence. The Syrah based wines of Northern Rhone are dry and austere while the Shiraz of Barossa is rich and fleshy. A variety that lends itself to long aging but can be drunk at any time of its evolution.
