The grapes for this wine are grown in the southern end of Heathcote in granitic soils. The cold nights and sunny days of the 2014 vintage combined to produce a Riesling of intense minerality and refreshing acidity.

The Chalmers family pioneered this versatile Sardinian white variety in Australia releasing Australia’s first home-grown wine from the variety in 2004, a wine that was recently cited by Max Allen in Gourmet Traveller magazine as one of the top 20 Australian wines of the past twenty years. There are now almost 60 producers working with vermentino, growing and crafting some amazing wines from a variety which is clearly thriving in many of Australia’s warmer growing regions.

This a classic Tuscan style Sangiovese. The wine will benefit from decanting and being served at a cool room temperature.

The Hub 2012 Shiraz is the first wine we have produced under The Hub label, and we're thrilled with how it's turned out. It won Trophy for Best Shiraz at the 2014 Heathcote Wine Show, outscoring the heavy weights of the region. Although it's drinking superbly now, we feel it hasn't yet peaked. It is medium bodied, with cherry, plum and spice and a fresh finish. Unfortunately, like all good things, supply is limited.

Our flagship wine lines up all our big guns to fire a salute to our winemaking ancestor. Chosen from the best shiraz barrels of the vintage, this wine spends two years in the best French oak to add further depths of intrigue. Centred around rich plum characters, sweetly perfumed, corseted by sophisticated aniseed and coffee aromas, the wine has an intense, layered palate strengthened by spice, earthiness and velvet tannins. Aglow in the glass, a table by the fire, waiting slow cooked beef.

Vibrant fruits and intensity brought into balance by a freshness and brightness in the wine that allows the complexity of flavours to come through. Wonderful underlying savoury and spice with beautifully ripened tannins and incredible length

(Paul Moran) “truly a benchmark example from a region renowned for this variety. Intensity, complexity, balance and length with a unique harmony and ethereal quality”.

This is a medium bodied wine style that is best served chilled.

2008 was a hot season that followed a warm, dry Spring. Vine growth was good and even throughout the vineyard. Summer was generally warm to hot and relatively dry throughout the ripening season. This produced small, concentrated berries with rich plum fruit flavours. During the mid March heatwave we ceased picking and resumed when cooler conditions prevailed in late March.

2009 was also a hot season that followed a cool, dry spring. Vine growth was moderate throughout the vineyard. Mid January, temperatures soared to 40 degrees and the extreme conditions did not abate until mid March. This resulted in significant vine stress, a modest degree of defoliation and berry shrivel. Ripening was supressed, resulting in a fine, elegant wine style.

Blending fruit from these two vintages has produced a medium weight, elegant sparkling shiraz, with high natural acidity and spicy fruit characteristics.

Most of the grapes from Mick Cann's property are destined for neighbouring Wild Duck Creek, where they are vinified into Heathcote's most prestigious wines. Like all good vignerons, Mick retains what he believes is the very pick of the crop for his own personal use. Showcasing samples directly from oak barrel, he was overwhelmed by the interest and the decision was made to design a label and to bottle the inaugural St Michaels Vineyard. He has released an extremely limited, small batch Shiraz, with remarkable structure and stately palate.

This wine is a vibrant expression of Heathcote Shiraz relying on intense fruit combined with subtle oak. This Shiraz is made to be approachable in its youth, but will also gain in complexity and finesse over the next 3-5 years.

The Pastiche is a blend of Shiraz from Tellurian's estate vineyard on Tranter Rd, Toolleen, on the western slopes of the Mount Camel range and the Tuohey family vineyard on the eastern side of Mount Camel. Both the Toolleen vineyard and the Tuohey vineyard are carefully managed by Winemaker Tobias Ansted and Viticulturist Tim Brown to ensure optimal vine balance using techniques such as shoot positioning, shoot thinning, fruit thinning, green harvesting and multiple picking passes in order to ensure exceptional fruit quality.
