The Shiraz is an individual vineyard wine made from the original vineyard, now 40 years old, planted in 1971. It is dense, rich and concentrated, with complex savoury secondary characters overlying the sweet plummy Shiraz fruit. Partial barrel fermentation in new French oak barriques and extended maceration on skins of the remaining must, builds depth and texture. This helps balance the power and natural ripeness of the dry grown Heathcote Shiraz, resulting in a multi layered, rich and powerful palate, but still with elegant fine grained tannin structure and length.

Blackberry, blackcurrant and liquorice aromas are replicated on the medium-bodied palate, with savoury tannins asserting themselves on the finish. Patience will reward.

In exceptional years after considered barrel tasting a decision is made to blend some of the wine to appear under our Reserve label. She-oak look for barrels with outstanding fruit flavour, fine tannins and good balance. A very limited number number of cases are produced. These wines are made for cellaring and sharing on special occassions.
This Reserve Shiraz was created after considered tasting from an equal blend of old vine and young vine fruit barrel fermented and matured in a 40% – 60% blend of new and aged French oak. The intense flavours of blackberry, cassis and cedar are balanced by the ripe tannins which carry the wine through to a very long and satisfying finish.This wine will age well in your cellar for at least the next decade.
